Internet Citrix Desktop

Remote access is changing July 1st

The web address for this site is changing to https://entry.sutterhealth.org.
Please bookmark this new address to continue remotely logging into the ABSMC Portal.

Both http://remote.absmc.net and http://bless.absmc.net will be disabled July 1, 2014.
You may also continue to use https://access.sutterhealth.org which provides more applications and network resources.

Additional instructions will be posted here and sent via email.
You must have either a Safeword token or Mobile Pass (access code via phone text) to access the new portal address.
If you need a token, Mobile Pass, or have any other type of token, please contact Charlye Thomas at ThomasC4@sutterhealth.org.

Why we're doing this: To enhance stability and security, Alta Bates Summit is upgrading portal access to align with the rest of Sutter Health.
In addition, this change will reduce costs for the medical center.
Going forward, support and security will be centrally managed.
