Vigil for San Leandro Hospital on Monday

A vigil to save San Leandro Hospital will be held on Monday, March 22, 2010, at 5:30pm. The goal of the vigil is to stop the closure of San Leandro Hospital by Sutter Health and Alameda County.

The Eden Township Healthcare District and Sutter Health are currently locked in a legal battle over the fate of San Leandro Hospital, spearheaded largely by Eden Township Director Carole Rogers.

A rally held in June 2009 featured a number of speakers, including California State Senator Ellen Corbett. A flyer for the event asks supporters of saving the hospital to join with "Eden District Board, California Nurses Association, the San Leandro Hospital nurses, doctors and staff, local residents, patients, seniors, Physicians Organizing Committee, San Leandro Community Action Network, and our community."

Expect to see County Supervisor candidates Wilma Chan and Beverly Johnson at the vigil, since both are proclaiming saving San Leandro Hospital as one of their top priorities.

The vigil will be held at 13847 E. 14th Street, in the parking lot adjacent to the Medical Arts Building and San Leandro Hospital.
