Alameda County Medical Center. As Chief Executive Officer, it is my privilege and duty to lead an organization that has served the healthcare needs of Alameda County since 1864. I'm proud of the accomplishments of our physicians and excellent staff.
From our roots as a 19th century tuberculosis sanitarium in San Leandro (the present day Fairmont Hospital) to the completion of spacious 21st century Trauma, Emergency and Surgery facilities at the Highland campus in Oakland, we have strived to meet the changing needs of all county residents, regardless of race, language, or financial means.
Our evolution continues. We have implemented language interpretation--in person, by phone, and via cutting-edge two-way video technology--in more than two dozen languages, as part of our commitment to addressing the rainbow diversity of our Alameda County patient population. We continue to be a leader in HIV services, with a bold initiative to provide universal HIV screening to patients who use our Emergency Department. And we are planning for the replacement of our acute inpatient building with new facilities that will be up-to-date and seismically safe.
This is a challenging and fascinating time for public hospitals and health systems, and we are meeting the challenges head on by building a truly outstanding team of medical staff, house staff and employees. If you are a health care professional, please visit the newly-enhanced Job Opportunities section and consider ACMC as the vehicle for your career growth. If you are a medical student planning for post-MD training, look into our outstanding residency programs affiliated with University of California-San Francisco and University of the Pacific.
And if you have any questions or ideas to share about Alameda County Medical Center, our work and our future, please feel free to contact me.
