Planning Commission approves California Pacific Medical Center hospital project
San Francisco Examiner

Despite a split among community groups, unions and residents on the $2.5 billion California Pacific Medical Center hospital project, the San Francisco Planning Commission gave the nod late Thursday to the controversial development that could place a massive new hospital at one of The City’s busiest corners. After a nearly 10-hour hearing — the majority of which was public comment — the commission voted 5-1 to certify the environmental impact report for the project, and also gave approval to several other parts of the deal, including a development agreement between The City and the Sutter Health affiliate that took months to negotiate.
