The Eden Township Healthcare District was created to build and operate Eden Hospital in Castro Valley. In 1997, residents of the District voted to approve the hospital’s affiliation with Sutter Health, creating a unique partnership between the two organizations. In 1998, Eden Medical Center became a private, not-for-profit hospital.
That year marked a fundamental change for the District. The members of the Board embraced two areas of responsibility: continuing the business of the District to meet the health needs in the community, and oversight and management of the Community Health Fund which is the District’s grants program.
In 2004, the District purchased San Leandro Hospital and leased the hospital to Eden Medical Center to operate, under a consolidated license, as an extension of the Castro Valley campus.
In 2007, the District and Sutter Health reached an agreement to pave the way for a new hospital in Castro Valley, to replace the original Eden Hospital and meet the state’s stringent earthquake standards.
