Alameda Hospital in affiliation talks
San Francisco Chronicle

Alameda Hospital’s board will consider pursuing a deal to hand over management of the financially ailing hospital to Alameda County’s health system, a deal the hospital’s top manager says will provide the cash needed to keep its doors open.

The Alameda Health Care District Board meets tonight to discuss approval of a non-binding letter of intent to pursue a merger with the Alameda Health System, and the county health system’s board is set to discuss it Tuesday. A deal could be closed by the end of this year.
