About

Mission

The mission of the Eden Health District is to improve the health of the community we serve by providing access to direct and indirect care services and health education.

Vision Statement

Our priority is improving health outcomes for our most vulnerable residents by working closely with community and public agencies through prevention, health education, and rapid response to emerging health issues.

EHD

The Eden Health District was established in 1948 to build and operate Eden Hospital, a community hospital to serve residents of Castro Valley, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, Hayward and nearby communities. The District operated Eden Hospital until 1998, when Eden Hospital (now known as Eden Medical Center) became an affiliate of Sutter Health. The District no longer has any affiliation with Eden Hospital (Eden Medical Center).

One continuing focus of the District is to oversee the endowment fund known as the Community Health Fund. Through responsible investments the fund uses its earnings to provide grants to local non-profit organizations, enabling them to provide much-needed health care services to those in need. Members of the Board carefully evaluate every application and make their grant selections in open session during a regularly scheduled Board meeting.

The District also provides free health education seminars for the community throughout the year at various locations within the District’s boundaries.

District’s Strategic Plan

The Eden Health District Board of Directors meets at least annually in special planning sessions, and with public input and Board review, priorities of the District are developed, evaluated, and revised.

Also, the Board of Directors continually evaluate programs and the current healthcare needs in Alameda County.

On April 29, 2022, the Board of Directors formally adopted the 2022 strategic plan for Eden Health District.  The 2022 Strategic Plan can be found here.

California Healthcare Districts

Healthcare Districts in California are public entities that provide community based health care services to residents throughout the State.  They respond to the needs in their District by providing a range of services, which may include a hospital, clinic, skilled nursing facility or emergency medical services; as well as education and wellness programs.  Each of California’s Healthcare Districts are governed by a locally elected Board of Directors who are directly accountable to the communities they serve.  For more information on Healthcare Districts in California, please visit the Association of California Healthcare Districts (ACHD) website at achd.org.
