California Pacific to start Cathedral Hill demolition, launch EMR
San Francisco Business Times

California Pacific Medical Center celebrates two big events this week: a Tuesday press event to officially start the demolition process at the site of its new Cathedral Hill hospital, and the planned Nov. 2 launch of a $50 million Epic Systems Corp. electronic medical records system at all of its campuses.

The Oct. 29 event wasn’t exactly the Gettysburg address: Sutter Health’s West Bay President Mike Cohill, Mayor Ed Lee and California Pacific CEO Warren Browner, M.D., gave largely forgettable and blessedly short speeches, although Browner won plaudits for keeping his succinct, sweet and humorous.
