Hospital would be a good fit for Natomas arena site
Sacramento Bee

If a sparkling new arena rises downtown and a major hospital springs from the old arena site in Natomas, it would be the very definition of a victory for Sacramento.

The site of Sleep Train Arena, set for demolition once a new downtown arena opens in the fall of 2016, would be one of the city’s largest redevelopment areas. A 2011 city staff report said the land – 100 acres the city is granting the Kings as part of the arena deal and 84 acres already controlled by the team – could be “ideal” for a major medical center.
