CALIFORNIA PACIFIC MEDICAL CENTER (CPMC) LONG RANGE DEVELOPMENT PLAN OVERVIEW - This is the first of three scheduled Informational Hearings that will provide an overview of the project. Specific topics to be discussed at this session include an overview of CPMC’s Long Range Development Plan, their strategy for seismic compliance, and their healthcare delivery plan. California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is made up of four medical centers in San Francisco, consisting of the California Campus (previously known as the Children’s Hospital of San Francisco), Pacific Campus (previously known as the Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center), Davies Campus (previously Ralph K. Davies Hospital), and St. Luke’s Campus. Three of CPMC’s four acute-care hospitals (California, Pacific, and St. Luke’s Campus’) must be rebuilt or de-licensed in order to comply with state law about the seismic stability of hospitals. CPMC proposes to consolidate the acute-care services currently located at the California and Pacific Campuses, and locate them at a new medical center at Van Ness Avenue and Geary. The Van Ness and Geary Medical Center would include a hospital on the west side of Van Ness Avenue ((Block 0695, Lots 005, 006) and a new Medical Office Building on the east side of Van Ness Avenue (Block 0694, Lots 005, 006, 007, 008, 009, 009A, 010). The sites are bounded by Franklin Street, Post Street, Van Ness Avenue, Cedar Street, Geary Street, and Geary Boulevard.  At the St. Luke’s Campus, CPMC proposes to construct a new hospital that will be located adjacent to the existing hospital tower on Cesar Chavez Street (Block 6576, Lot 021). The existing hospital tower on St. Luke’s Campus (Block 6575, Lots 001, 002) would be demolished after the new hospital is built, operational, and patients have been transferred. In a subsequent phase, a replacement medical office building/expansion building would be built. CPMC also proposes to reauthorize their previously approved Conditional Use for the Davies Neuroscience Institute (aka Noe Street Medical Office Building) located at 601 Duboce Street (Block 3539, Lot 001).

Preliminary Recommendation: No Action Requested - Informational Discussion Only.
