Hospitals up for sale provoke concerns about facilities’ fates
San Francisco Chronicle

Daly City and labor leaders on Monday urged state officials to keep Seton Medical Center open as a full-service, acute care hospital even if new owners take over.

Seton’s parent company, Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, have put the Daly City hospital up for sale along with five other financially strapped hospitals.

“What we’re looking for is a buyer that’s going to continue to operate this hospital in a manner similar to Daughters of Charity,” Daly City Mayor David Canepa said shortly before a news conference Monday.
