Ceremony marks Stanford Health Care/ValleyCare merger

New medical system is region's market share leader

Hundreds turned out for this month's community ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the merger of ValleyCare Health System into the much larger Stanford Health Care organization.

The newly-named Stanford Health Care at ValleyCare system is expected to benefit from its greater Tri-Valley market area population that is projected to grow by nearly 7% over the next five years. This is higher than both the expected growth rate for Alameda County (5.6%) and statewide (4%).

This marketing/service area of 503,000 residents includes the entire Tri-Valley as well as Tracy, another fast-growing city that feeds significantly into the Hacienda and Bishop Ranch workforces and will make increasing use of Stanford Health Care/ValleyCare services.

Even with quality health care competition from San Ramon Medical Center, Eden Medical Center, John Muir and Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, the new Stanford Health Care/ValleyCare is the inpatient market share leader in this area.
