Petition to halt new Castro Valley hospital denied
Contra Costa Times

A California Nurses Association lawsuit that threatened construction of the new Eden Medical Center has been denied by the Alameda County Superior Court. The July 7 ruling came about a year after nurses filed a petition against the hotly debated rebuilding of the hospital. Nurses said the required environmental impact report associated with the hospital project was not completed properly and failed to address concerns that included traffic, and ground and water contaminations.
