City’s Cathedral Hill hospital talks morph into deal for two hospitals

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

The city’s would-be deal with California Pacific Medical Center to build a huge new hospital on Cathedral Hill that Mayor Lee’s administration essentially bungled last year, has re-emerged as something entirely new. The plan to be unveiled today calls for the Sutter Health affiliate to scale back its planned Cathedral Hill hospital from 555 to 274 beds and expand capacity of a rebuilt St. Luke’s Hospital in the Mission District (pictured) from 80 to 120 beds, the Chronicle says.

If it flies, the new plan would mean less congestion on Van Ness and around Cathedral Hill, and maintain the viability of St. Luke’s. Supervisors David Chiu, David Campos and Mark Farrell led the negotiations.
