City strikes deal for two new hospitals
San Francisco Chronicle

San Francisco officials have struck a deal with California Pacific Medical Center to build two seismically safe hospitals following months of negotiations after city supervisors balked at the original agreement Mayor Ed Lee had negotiated. Under the new compromise, to be announced Tuesday, the Sutter Health affiliate will scale back the size of its planned hospital on Cathedral Hill from 555 beds to 274, and expand the capacity of a rebuilt St.

Luke’s Hospital in the Mission District from 80 beds to 120, steps designed to ease congestion concerns around Cathedral Hill and maintain the viability of St. Luke’s, those familiar with the talks said.
