Hospital Facing Medi-Cal Cuts
Alameda Sun

Alameda’s financially ailing hospital is preparing to take another hit, in the form of a retroactive $450,000 payment for Medi-Cal cuts imposed in 2011 as a state budget- balancing move. The cuts are slated to go into effect in January 2014.

The cuts will be painful for Alameda Hospital, its chief executive officer, Deborah E. Stebbins, said. Luckily the cuts are not as troublesome as for some of the state’s rural hospitals or facilities in San Francisco reportedly struggling to stay open.
