California Pacific Medical Center, foundations launch major eye surgery center
San Francisco Business Times

The Pacific Vision Foundation plans to launch a major new eye institute at 711 Van Ness next spring, with help from California Pacific Medical Center, the Lions Eye Foundation of California and Nevada, and a group of San Francisco ophthalmologists — and a $10 million low-interest loan from the nationally known Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The new institute will provide eye care and surgery for people who can’t afford to pay, subsidized in part by leasing space to the ophthalmologists and by operating a for-profit surgery center.
