Transbay hospital deal: Stanford Health Care, ValleyCare sign affilation agreement

Stanford Health Care and Pleasanton’s ValleyCare Health System have signed a merger agreement that will make the East Bay hospital system a subsidiary of Stanford’s health care system if certain conditions are met. They include the retention of ValleyCare’s medical staff and approval by regulators and ValleyCare’s so-called “corporate members,” a group of community leaders who have long helped govern the system in eastern Alameda County.
