The district was formed in 1948 to oversee Eden Hospital, a facility built to serve residents in Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, San Leandro, Hayward and other nearby communities.
That arrangement lasted until 1998 when Eden Hospital became part of the Sutter Health organization.
Now, the Eden Township district oversees the Community Health Fund and provides grants from that endowment. It also runs four medical offices on three campuses in Dublin, San Leandro and Castro Valley.
The district doesn't collect taxes. Its revenues comes from the four medical offices and the sale of Eden Hospital to Sutter Health.
Dev Mahadevan, the district's chief executive officer, said the district's three employees make sales comparable or even a bit lower than similar districts.
Even without a hospital to oversee, Mahadevan said the district still provides essential services to its communities at minimal expense.
