This morning the Planning Commission will hear an informational presentation on the proposed California Pacific Medical Center long range plan, which includes the new Cathedral Hill campus, new St. Luke's Hospital, and renovated Davies Campus. The commissioners won't be voting on any of the projects, but instead can issue a resolution of intent to initiate the General Plan Amendments necessary for the projects to go forward.
The expansion is pretty massive: the Cathedral Hill Medical Center will include a new acute care hospital, a new medical office building, and a pedestrian tunnel under Van Ness Avenue to connect the two facilities. The proposal for St. Luke’s Hospital includes the construction of a new five-story, 80-bed acute care hospital, sited on the campus’ existing surface parking lot and
over a portion of the to-be-vacated San Jose Avenue. The Davies Campus would include the creation of a four-story Neuroscience Institute over existing parking lots. There's already been a Draft EIR for the plan, and final certification will come before the Planning Commission on April 26. If you can't make it to City Hall for this morning's hearing, you can watch it live here starting at 10am.
