Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley to move patients Saturday
The Mercury News

In a move that has been scripted down to the minute, Eden Medical Center doctors and staff members will transfer 60 to 65 patients from the old hospital to the new one on Saturday.

The carefully choreographed move comes after 28 “move school” classes and a dress rehearsal Wednesday, when volunteers filled in for patients, said Carolyn Kemp, Sutter Health spokeswoman. On Saturday, the actual patients will be transported one at a time by wheelchair, gurney or bed. “It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to move each patient,” Kemp said.
