3 -7 PM Save the Day! Save St. Luke's! Join the day of action being planned to save St. Luke's Hospital. California Pacific Medical Center and the Sutter Healthcare hospital chain (CPMC/Sutter) plan to convert St. Luke's Hospital to just outpatient clinics, and transfer hospital care to CPMC facilities in richer parts of town where it can make more money. St. Luke's has at least a 6-7 times higher proportion of poor and minority patients than CPMC's other facilities. Read more. Today, CPMC is closing its Newborn Intensive Care Unit, so babies born at St. Luke's with severe respiratory and other problems will have to be transported across town to other CPMC facilities. Closing St. Luke's as a hospital is a racist attack on the poor because it would leave South-East San Francisco, low-income, largely minority, and already without sufficient medical facilities, with only SF General Hospital, which is already over-crowded. Location: 3555 Cesar Chavez (at Valencia, map, 14, 26, 27 buses) Read more. Sign on-line petition. Join the community coalition to save St. Luke's Hospital.
