Sutter Health to transfer control of San Leandro Hospital to Alameda County’s medical system
Inside Bay Area

Sutter Health will transfer control of San Leandro Hospital and $22 million to the Alameda Health System in order to prevent the collapse of the 93-bed facility and free Sutter of a financial albatross once and for all. The county on Tuesday signed a nonbinding letter-of-intent to take ownership of the hospital, according to Sutter officials. The deal would end years of legal battles, as well as the near shutdown of San Leandro Hospital’s emergency room, the only such facility in the city.
