Inside Bay Area

Half a dozen Alta Bates Summit Medical Center administrators, physicians and nurses donned hard hats and gripped ceremonial gold-colored shovels Monday to launch what they hailed as the next step in the hospital’s evolution: an 11-story patient facility. Nearly a decade in the making, the new Patient Care Pavilion includes plans for 238 acute-care private patient rooms, a new emergency department and a new 1,000-space parking garage.
