Alameda Hospital Joins Alameda Health System

Alameda (Calif.) Hospital has officially become a part of Oakland, Calif.-based Alameda Health System.

The affiliation will give Alameda residents access to specialty care that was previously limited or unavailable at the hospital, according to a news release. The health system now has operational and governance responsibility for the hospital, although the City of Alameda Health Care District has retained ownership of Alameda Hospital's real property and lease holds.

"With the support of AHS, Alameda Hospital solidifies its position as the hospital of choice for Alameda residents," Alameda Hospital's Interim Chief Administrative Officer Deborah E. Stebbins said in the release. "We will strengthen current services including the emergency department, and enhance our campus for the future."

Under the affiliation agreement, the health system will fund facility improvements, new technology and state-mandated seismic upgrades at the hospital, according to the release. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Alameda Hospital board members signed a letter of intent last June to merge with AHS, and the health system's board of trustees and the Alameda Health Care District board of directors approved the transaction this past November.
