On Saturday, Dec. 1, from 7 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Eden Medical Center safely transferred 75 patients from its former site to its new modern state-of-the art 130-bed facility in Castro Valley.
After 18 months of planning, training and focusing, more than 500 clinical staff, physicians and IT specialists supported and transported patients from critical care to the Emergency Department.
“Each patient had an assigned transport team and necessary clinical staff to ensure their safety and comfort,” said Rose Corcoran, R.N., vice president of patient care.
“It was an incredible day–to work with such an experienced and caring team and to witness not only making the new medical center come to life, but seeing the implementation of the new electronic health record–all in one day . . . I’m very proud!”
