San Francisco, CPMC hospital group strike deal
Mayor Ed Lee has reached an agreement with California Pacific Medical Center officials over their plans to build five new medical facilities in San Francisco, including a massive new hospital on Van Ness Avenue, which will see the medical group contributing more than $115 million toward affordable housing, Muni improvements and other public benefits. That is on top of spending more than $86 million in charitable healthcare annually for a decade, city officials said. The deal also requires California Pacific Medical Center, a Sutter Health affiliate, to retrofit its St. Luke's campus in the Mission District and maintain it as an acute-care hospital with an emergency room for 20 years, officials said.
