In the months leading up to announcing a controversial $750 million hospital, California Northstate University frequently met with Elk Grove officials to discuss plans and at one point asked the city to provide “permanent financing through bonds” for its development, according to recently released city emails.

City economic development director Darrell Doan met with the private medical school’s president and CEO Alvin Cheung July 20, 2017, to discuss the school “developing an extensive array of medical and educational facilities in Elk Grove over the next 2 to 10 years which they are calling ‘medical city,’” according to Doan’s notes from the meeting released through a public records request.
