Why Leadership on Eden Health Board is Important
I am running for the Eden Healthcare District Board to expand access for healthcare in the Eden Area (Hayward, San Leandro, Castro Valley and San Lorenzo) and to keep St. Rose Hospital in Hayward open for decades to come.
As Mayor of San Leandro, I helped prevent the planned closure of San Leandro Hospital. Today, St. Rose Hospital is in a financially dangerous position.
The closure of St. Rose would be devastating for the 160,000 residents of Hayward. St. Rose is the only acute care general hospital in Hayward. Losing St. Rose would also have negatively impact patients using hospitals in San Leandro and Castro Valley. St. Rose receives over 40,000 patient visits to its emergency room each year.
The current members of the Eden Health Board fail to appreciate the importance of saving St. Rose. If elected, I will dedicate myself to keeping St. Rose open.
Please complete your election ballot and vote for Stephen Cassidy for Eden Health District Board.
