Hospital or Healthcare District?
East Bay Express

An old wound is being reopened in the years-long fight to keep San Leandro Hospital in operation. Alameda County and hospital officials say the community hospital, despite various subsidies, continues to incur monthly losses of up to $1 million, and they say the hospital could be forced to close unless the Eden Township Healthcare District hands over $17 million. However, Eden Township officials say the healthcare district can’t afford to pay the $17 million all at once, and being forced to so would bankrupt the public agency.
