Marin General lops 38 beds from planned hospital, citing fewer inpatients
San Francisco Business Times

Marin General Hospital, which last November won voter approval for a $394 million bond issue to help rebuild its aging Greenbrae facility, is lopping off 38 beds — an entire floor — from its planned rebuild due to projected decreased inpatient volume.

Last spring hospital officials envisioned a $500 million, 235-bed new complex with all private rooms, larger operating suites and up-to-date technology seen as needed to attract both patients and young doctors to Marin General. At the time, plans called for a 300,000-square-foot hospital and a 100,000-square-foot outpatient building, both five stories tall.
