Alameda Health System (AHS) is seeking interested community members to serve on the Alameda Health System Board of Trustees.
The board is instrumental in shaping the future of this organization that has served Alameda County for more than 150 years – driven by our mission of Caring, Healing, Teaching and Serving All.
Our staff and providers reflect the people of Alameda County, one of the most diverse areas in the entire country. We embrace our role as an anchor institution and recognize our responsibility to use our resources and influence to address social determinants of health such as housing, transportation and poverty to ensure total health and wellness for those we serve.
We are nationally recognized by the American College of Surgeons for our adult Level 1 Trauma Center, the only one in the East Bay. Medical students nationwide compete by the thousands for a handful of slots in our medical residency programs, and Our Family Birthing Center has received the Baby-Friendly Designation from the World Health Organization.
Our reach extends beyond our walls into the community through trauma prevention programs designed to prevent injuries from gun violence, safe sleeping tips for parents and their newborns and a Mobile Health Clinic to care for the homeless.
We are propelled by our promise to:
- Extend Prevention and Wellness to Vulnerable People
- Partner with Community Based Organizations to Address Health Disparities and Social Determinants of Health
- Advocate for Health Coverage, Access and Total Health and Wellness for All
If our promise resonates with you, we encourage you to apply.
For examples of the great work we do as an organization see “Alameda Health System in Action” below.
