A leadership shuffle is shaking up the board that oversees Alameda County’s public hospital consortium.

Five new members are joining the 13-member Board of Trustees of the Alameda Health System, which runs Highland Hospital in Oakland and an expanding network of smaller hospitals and clinics throughout the county. The new members are Oakland real estate developer James Falaschi, of Orinda; consultant María Hernández, of Union City; corporate attorney James Potter, of Berkeley; retired Wells Fargo executive Patricia Scates, of Oakland; and Alameda resident Tracy Jensen, who has a long career in health policy.
