San Francisco Examiner

As tense negotiations with The City delay approval of a planned $2.5 billion hospital complex, California Pacific Medical Center officials announced Monday that they dismissed 120 consultants on a project once expected to break ground in October.

Spokesman Sam Singer said hospital officials let go of 120 architects, engineers and planners until there is more certainty about the project’s future. Singer said the consultants were costing $3 million a month. Consultants working on planning issues will remain on the payroll.
