The Mercury News

Eden Township Healthcare District directors have delayed making a decision on whether to pay a $20 million subsidy to keep San Leandro Hospital open, leaving the facility’s future in limbo. The board took no action at its meeting Wednesday on a request by Alex Briscoe, director of the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, for the additional funds to keep the hospital and its emergency room open for three years and to complete a deal between Alameda Health Systems and Sutter Health.
