Mayor Ed Lee ups ante to keep St. Luke’s open
San Francisco Chronicle

San Francisco Mayor Ed Leeis upping the ante on the California Pacific Medical Center project on the site of the old Cathedral Hill Hotel, saying he wants an ironclad agreement from Sutter Health that it will keep St. Luke’s in the Mission open for 20 years.

Otherwise, he says, no deal for a big new hospital and medical office building on Van Ness Avenue.

“That’s was bottom line for me when we started our negotiations, and it’s still the bottom line today,” Lee said.
