Editorial: S.F. Should Accept $1.1B for Medical Services
San Francisco officials ought to accept a $1.1 billion offer from the California Pacific Medical Center "to provide health care for low-income and uninsured people in San Francisco over the next 10 years," a San Francisco Examiner editorial states. CPMC is seeking to secure city approval to build a 555-bed hospital on Cathedral Hill and to renovate St. Luke's Hospital. "And none of this will cost San Francisco taxpayers one dime," the editorial adds, concluding that city officials should "stop playing chicken with their constituents' health and lives."
