Opportunities: The Campaign for Alameda Health System

It is with great excitement I share with you historic news for Alameda Health System Foundation. Earlier this year, celebrating with friends and family at our Annual Gala, I was pleased to announce Opportunities: The Campaign for Alameda Health Systema major fundraising campaign to support equipment and program needs for the new Acute Care Tower at Alameda Health System’s Highland Hospital campus.

The nine-story Acute Care Tower opened on April 4, 2016. The project, made possible by a significant investment from Alameda County, was a tremendous undertaking by the community, for the community. Since 2012, the Foundation has been working behind the scenes to rally support from corporations, foundations, and individuals like you to make Opportunities happen.

Together, we have raised $22.8 million to help fund modern equipment, advanced technology, and innovative programsand that is just the beginning.

With this Campaign, we are investing in the mission of Alameda Health System to improve the health of Alameda County and ensure a vibrant future for our community.

We are caring.

Our youngest community members deserve a warm welcome to the world. The comprehensive Family Birthing Center in the new Tower provides just that. Private and spacious Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum Suites offer a soothing, homelike environment to foster bonding between parents and newborns.

We are healing.

The new Diagnostic and Interventional Services Center, or DISC, provides patients with mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and other state-of-the-art digital imaging services. DISC is enhancing access to care, shortening wait times, and improving patient outcomes and satisfaction as a result.

We are teaching.

As healthcare transforms, workforce development is more important than ever. The Health Professions Training and Education Center at the Highland campus will create a unique and dynamic learning environment for aspiring and seasoned health care professionals alike.

We are serving all.

To secure the future of the health system, generous donors have helped the Foundation establish an Endowment, growing our capacity to support future programs, equipment, or facility needs. The Endowment will strengthen our safety-net care for those in need in our community.

Opportunities is the largest fundraising effort in the history of the Foundation. I invite you to take part in this momentous Campaign by making your gift today. To those who have made an early commitment to support Opportunities, I extend my deepest appreciation.

While we have exceeded our initial Campaign goal, there is still work to be done. There are untapped opportunities to increase access to care… to reduce health disparities… to inspire and to train the next generation of health care professionals.

Your contribution in any amount brings Opportunities to life.

Thank you for your commitment to Investing in Caring, Healing, Teaching, Serving All. You have helped make Alameda Health System the world-class health care provider and medical training institution that it is today, and your generosity ensures that it remains one well into the future.
