S.F. board delays big hospital decision
San Francisco Chronicle

Faced with the possibility of dealing a fatal blow to California Pacific Medical Center’s $2.5 billion planned overhaul of its facilities in San Francisco, the Board of Supervisors voted late Tuesday to give the medical group a two-week reprieve to address a range of concerns.

California Pacific requested the postponement after it appeared the medical group did not have the votes to uphold the environmental impact study on its long-range development plan for five sites. The supervisors’ subsequent comments showed that a majority of the board found the environmental report inadequate.
