Regional Medical Center provides high-quality healthcare, improves human life, and proudly serves San Jose as a vital community health partner.

We continuously evaluate how Regional Medical Center can best meet our patients' evolving healthcare needs. After careful consideration, we're making several changes that align with those needs.

We are announcing that Regional Medical Center on August 12, 2024, will:

  • Close its Trauma Center services, which has witnessed a decline in utilization of our Level II Trauma Center services over the last several years.
  • Close its ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) program, due to decline in utilization of our STEMI program over the last several years.
  • Close its cardiac catheter laboratory and cardiovascular surgery services.
    • The hospital is exploring the possibility of maintaining a modified, reduced cardiac catheter laboratory service and plans to discuss the options and considerations for doing so with the California Department of Public Health.
  • The hospital will function as a Comprehensive Stroke Center until August 12, 2024.
    • The hospital is working closely with The Joint Commission to transition to a Primary Stroke Center accreditation thereafter.

We will coordinate a smooth transition for patients with several Bay Area hospital partners who have the appropriate and comprehensive range of services to care for them. We are working closely with our medical staff to maintain continuity of care for our patients. We will continue to provide emergency care services to all patients. These changes will affect a small number of our colleagues. We are working with each impacted individual to support next steps for their careers based on their skills, training, and experience.
