The California Nurses Association has won a contract for 200 RNs at San Leandro Hospital under new owner Alameda Health System, according to an article in San Francisco Business Times.
San Leandro Hospital has been a part of Sutter Health for years and will be making the switch to Alameda Health System by the end of the month.
The new contract includes contract standards with Sutter, but also improvements in pension benefits and retiree health. The 200 RNs will receive pay increases totaling 3 percent during the contract’s term, which will run through year-end 2015.
Aside from the transfer of ownership, Alameda Health System’s CEOP Wright Lassiter will operate San Leandro Hospital starting on Oct. 31. Lassiter plan to make San Leandro Hospital a full-service hospital along with an ER.
