$887.4 million bond for San Francisco General Hospital

San Francisco Chronicle, May 14, 2008

A campaign to rebuild San Francisco General Hospital took a critical step with a proposal for an $887.4 million bond measure. The existing hospital treats about 100,000 patients annually, but fails to meet state seismic requirements and must be replaced or closed as an acute-care facility. If voters approve the general obligation bond measure in November construction would begin in summer 2009. The new hospital would open in 2015.
