Silva Pediatric Clinic transfers to Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center
Submitted By Lori Baptista
Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. (TVHC) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Silva Pediatric Clinic, formerly under the auspices of St. Rose Hospital, Hayward, which recently entered into agreement to be acquired by a new management company to improve its operations and its fiscal position. To prepare for this transition, the hospital Board decided to cease providing services at the Silva Clinic. Final approval for the hospital is now pending with the State Attorney General's Office.
TVHC and St. Rose Hospital share a common goal of improving the community's health and have finalized negotiations for TVHC to provide medical services at Silva Pediatric Clinic to ensure continued access to quality primary healthcare for vulnerable children from low-income families. The transition, already underway, is expected to be completed by early January 2013, during which time services to the community will continue without interruption.
"Under TVHC, the Silva clinic will not only survive, it will thrive. TVHC is uniquely positioned to integrate the clinics' services in the patient centered medical home model", notes Alex Briscoe, Director of Alameda County Health Care Services Agency. "This deal is not just about finances. It is about the clinical expertise and the authentic partnership TVHC has established with the Hayward community. We are delighted that TVHC and St. Rose Hospital have worked through the many details to make this deal happen."
