Sutter Health: Eden Township must pay up or donate to San Leandro Hospital HEALTH_-_Health_2007_Album_Art

Sutter officials formally agreed to donate the hospital to public health authority Alameda Health System last week in a deal that is expected to close by Oct. 30. Sutter won a legal battle last year against Eden Township over ownership of the hospital, and an arbitrator decided in June the district owes Sutter $17 million as a result. « We are moving to have the arbitration award of $17 million entered as a judgment against the Eden Township Healthcare District so that we can execute on the judgment, » Sutter spokeswoman Stacey Wells wrote in an email. « We remain willing to consider waiving execution of the judgment if the District contributes an amount that we find acceptable to the fund to subsidize the continued operation of San Leandro Hospital. » Wells declined to specify what donation amount would be considered acceptable. Alameda Health System plans to keep the hospital doors open as an acute care facility with an emergency room with financial help from other government agencies. Acquiescing to the requests of local health and elected officials, Eden Township’s board of directors voted in June to raise up to $20 million for url the hospital. But the grant-giving public agency’s resources are limited, said Eden Township’s CEO, Dev Mahadevan, although revenue from its rented office space is increasing. The district’s board chairwoman, Carole Rogers, said in June the board is not interested in selling all assets and dissolving the district, an option that might raise enough funds to pay for the damages or for a hefty donation to the hospital. Eden Township officials did not respond this week to requests for comment.
