Physicians banded together to establish the Peralta Hospital in 1928. Expansion occurred after World War II on this building complex, designed by Stone, Mulloy, Marraccini, and Patterson, Architects. Due to rising operating costs, Peralta underwent a series of mergers. First, Peralta combined with its neighbor, Samuel Merritt Hospital to form the "Merritt-Peralta Medical Center" in 1982. Providence Hospital merged with Merritt-Peralta Medical Center in 1992 to form the "Summit Medical Center." Most recently, the Summit Medical Center joined with the Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley to form "Alta Bates Summit Medical Center" in 1999. (See Samuel Merritt University, "History of Samuel Merritt University," accessed 04/18/2016.)
