Alameda Health System (AHS) is currently seeking interested community members to serve on the Alameda Health System Board of Trustees. In order to best meet the health care needs of the residents of Alameda County, the California State Legislature approved in 1998 the establishment of an independent health authority– the Alameda County Medical Center – to provide county health services. In 2014, ACMC was renamed Alameda Health System (AHS) in light of its expansion to include San Leandro and Alameda Hospitals. The formation of the hospital authority was a key step towards delivering on our important role in the community as a safety net provider, an academic training center, and a leader in trauma and specialty services.
The Board of Trustees plays a vital role in advancing the excellence and innovation of our organization in order to lead the organization forward in carrying out its mission and vision. We are seeking dedicated individuals respected in the community, knowledgeable in their field, and interested in and willing to learn about hospital and healthcare-related matters. The Alameda Health System Trustees must have the necessary talent and skill set to consider the issues within the jurisdiction of the Board with a commitment to the organization and the community it serves. As a Trustee, your direction and guidance will benefit the community we serve.
We are particularly interested in and encourage applicants from Alameda County Board of Supervisors, District 1.
If you are interested in joining the Alameda Health System Board of Trustees and are able to meet the qualifications and expectations listed in the attached packet, we strongly encourage you to apply.
