Ed Lee, California Pacific refuse to budge on deal
San Francisco Chronicle

The largest development deal under Mayor Ed Lee’s tenure, a $2.5 billion agreement that would see two new, seismically safe hospitals built in San Francisco, is in peril.

Lee insists that the deal must guarantee that St. Luke’s Hospital in the Mission District, which serves lower-income residents, remain open for 20 years after it is rebuilt. But on Monday, California Pacific Medical Center refused to budge.
