New CPMC hospital site on Cathedral Hill has groundbreaking ceremony
San Francisco Examiner

The demolition of the old Cathedral Hill Hotel in San Francisco is under way so a new California Pacific Medical Center hospital can be built at the site — the culmination of years of negotiations between city and hospital officials over the project.

Mayor Ed Lee joined CPMC CEO Warren Browner and others at a ceremony Tuesday morning to celebrate the milestone. Work to remove the shuttered hotel at Van Ness Avenue and Geary Boulevard began last month and will include a public demolition in a couple weeks.
