Vote on S.F. hospitals likely in 2013
San Francisco Chronicle

Negotiations are ongoing between city officials and Sutter Health over a $2 billion project for two hospitals in San Francisco – but there won’t be a vote on the matter any time soon.

Instead, the Board of Supervisors will push any vote on the deal off into the new year.

Three supervisors – David Chiu, David Campos and Mark Farrell – as well as Ken Rich from Mayor Ed Lee’s office have been in intense talks with Sutter Health’s West Bay president, Mike Cohill, and Warren Browner, CEO of the Sutter-affiliated California Pacific Medical Center.
