CPMC hospital development vote wins 2-week delay

San Francisco Chronicle, July 19, 2012

Faced with the possibility of receiving a fatal blow to its $2.5 billion proposal to overhaul its medical facilities in San Francisco, the Sutter Health-affiliated California Pacific Medical Center requested—and ultimately got—a two-week postponement of a vote that it was expected to lose on the environmental impact study for its long-range development plans. The Board of Supervisors unanimously decided to grant the reprieve until July 31 after a Sutter Health official pledged to take substantive steps to jump-start stalled negotiations on a range of concerns over CPMC's development plans.
