In recent years, our Annual Gala has commemorated a new day in health, a 150-year legacy of service, and the opening of a state-of-the-art facility at Alameda Health System’s Highland Hospital. This year’s event—Momentum—honored our journey thus far as well as the one that lies ahead: fulfilling our vision to increase access, eliminate disparities, and promote equity in health.
Presented by Traditions Behavioral Health, the elegant affair was held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Rock Wall Wine Company in Alameda, CA. The evening recognized three AHS providers for their outstanding commitment to patient care and featured a cocktail reception, seated dinner, awards program, and after party, as well as live and silent auctions. High school senior Yesenia Hernandez shared her story to raise funds for HealthPATH, a career development program for youth and young adults to explore careers in health care at our hospitals and wellness centers.
