The Department currently provides coverage to 3 acute care hospitals across the system including: Highland Hospital, San Leandro Hospital and Alameda Hospital. InApril of 2016, AHS opened a brand new, state-of-the art 9-story, Acute Care Tower at Highland (level 1 trauma center) to better serve the city of Oakland and the broader East Bay.

A beautiful urban mecca, the city boasts a plethora of shops and restaurants, and a walkable lifestyle with vibrant neighborhoods with distinct charm including the Oakland Hills with spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay.  The city is a renowned culinary hotbed with diverse cuisines in both restaurants and markets, often featuring locally grown produce with an international influence.
