My Top 3 Priorities

  • Prepare and plan for compliance with 2030 State seismic standards to ensure future generations of Alamedans have access to an emergency department and acute care services
  • Ensure renovations are completed in order to comply with 2020 State seismic standards, so there is not an interruption of services at Alameda Hospital
  • Increase access to services and providers at Alameda Hospital for all Alamedans
