Healthcare District Votes Against Sutter Purchasing San Leandro Hospital

The Eden Township Healthcare District voted against Sutter Health's purchase option of San Leandro Hospital at its meeting on Tuesday, August 18, 2009.

Board members Vin Sawhney, Carole Rogers, and Harry S. Dvorsky voted against Sutter Health's purchase option. The Board of Directors also voted to seek legal counsel on possible options. The Board action gives opponents more time in their fight to keep San Leandro Hospital open.

Further discussion of San Leandro Hospital's future will happen at Senator Ellen Corbett's town hall meeting on Thursday, August 27, 2009, at the San Leandro Library. The meeting will start at 6pm. The San Leandro Library is located at 300 Estudillo Avenue.

It's always a win when folks "in charge" hear the voice of the community and act accordingly. A coastal town of 80K near an Earthquake fault line needs a hospital. Period. End of story.
