San Francisco Business Times

Alameda County officials belatedly confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Sutter Health has agreed to donate San Leandro Hospital to Alameda Health System and pay $22 million to help the hospital transition to the new system. The transaction deadline is July 2013, according to a statement by County Supervisor Wilma Chan, who has been leading efforts to put pressure on Sutter to sweeten the deal. But regulatory approvals for the deal aren’t expected until October, the planned transfer date.
