City gives Oakland hospital go-ahead for expansion
San Francisco Chronicle

Plans for a major expansion of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland got a green light from the City Council Tuesday, and the hospital can now add 20 beds, private intensive care rooms, and a slew of seismic upgrades to better serve families in Oakland. Such changes will dramatically improve the facility, said Marsha Luster, the hospital’s manager of social services. Speaking at a May 19 meeting when council members considered the plan for preliminary approval, Luster pointed out that the hospital doesn’t have enough beds for parents to stay overnight with their kids.
