Cathedral Hill Hotel Will Be a Hospital in 5 Years

New, 27 comments

The yellowing Cathedral Hill Hotel on the corner of Van Ness and Geary's scheduled to close forever on Oct. 31, paving the way for California Pacific Medical Center to get the wheels turning on their brand-new Cathedral Hill Hospital. The CPMC, who unabashedly says in its Facebook tagline it's the "coolest hospital in SF, possibly the country and even the world!", will tear down the hotel and put up a $1.7 billion, 555-bed acute and women and children's care hospital, designed by architecture firm SmithGroup. Across the street will go a smaller medical office building, which means the days are numbered also for those furniture liquidators and Peruvian restaurant Fina Estampa. The hospital will be shooting for a LEED Silver rating, and CPMC's looking at a late 2014 or early 2015 opening.
