CPMC hospital deal hits snag; Mayor Ed Lee tries to renegotiate
San Francisco Chronicle

Mayor Ed Lee’s staff acknowledged Monday the mayor needs to renegotiate a key provision of his deal with California Pacific Medical Center to overhaul its medical facilities after it was revealed that the complex deal does not guarantee the long-term operation of a new St. Luke’s hospital in the Mission District. A viable, rebuilt St. Luke’s operating for at least the next 20 years had been touted by Lee as a selling point in the deal.
