Battle over San Leandro Hospital not yet over

The Oakland Tribune, January 11, 2012

Sutter Health scored a seemingly decisive victory last month in the long-running battle over the future of San Leandro Hospital. Sutter has plans to shutter its ER and convert the hospital from an acute care emergency service facility to an acute rehabilitation center. Critics of the plan say closing the ER means San Leandro residents will have to travel out of town during medical emergencies. The Eden Township Healthcare District sued Sutter over the plan.
