Stephen Cassidy For Eden Township Healthcare District Director 2018
I am pleased to announce that I am a candidate for the Eden Healthcare District Board. I wish to expand access to health care to the People of Castro Valley, Hayward, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland, Fairview and San Leandro, as your representative on the Eden Board. Today, the Eden District funds health education programs. While useful, this is not why the District was established. I will refocus the District on its historic role of providing health care. We must keep St. Rose, a nonprofit, community hospital in Hayward, open and expand access to health care across the Eden Area.
This photos is from the press conference announcing the saving of San Leandro Hospital from closure by Sutter Health and its transfer to public ownership under the Alameda Health System.
As Mayor of San Leandro I worked tirelessly to keep San Leandro Hospital open. In collaboration with the Alameda County Supervisors, and in particular Supervisor Wilma Chan, we kept the emergency room open and transferred San Leandro Hospital to public ownership under the Alameda Health System. I also spearheaded initiatives that resulted in the opening of the Barbara Lee Student Health Center at San Leandro High School and a free health clinic in San Leandro for the needy and families with low incomes.
Thank you for your support. Please share this message with your family and friends living in the Eden Area.
