Sutter Health considering closing major East Bay hospital
San Francisco Business Times

Sutter Health is considering the closure of its Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley before January 2030, a step that could cost thousands of jobs and leave the upper East Bay without a significant private hospital between Vallejo and Oakland.

That assumes, as seems increasingly likely, that the West Contra Costa Healthcare District will follow through with plans to close its financially ailing Doctors Medical Center in San Pablo by month-end.
