TOWN HALL: NEIGHBORS & COMMUNITY MEETING ON THE FUTURE OF ST. LUKE’S HOSPITAL
HOSTED BY DISTRICT 9 SUPERVISOR DAVID CAMPOS

Thursday, July 9, 2009, 6-8 PM
Precita Valley Community Center
534 Precita Avenue, San Francisco

Join Supervisors David Campos and John Avalos to discuss Sutter Health/CPMC’s plans for the future of St. Luke’s Hospital. Since CPMC is a private entity, how can the public influence CPMC’s plans both to ensure a viable hospital that provides access to healthcare for all and livable neighborhoods?

This meeting will include an explanation of Blue Ribbon Panel recommendations by panelists and information on the updated plan presented at a CPMC hosted community meeting held on June 23rd.

Background:
* In 2001, Sutter Health took control of St. Luke’s as part of the settlement of an anti-trust lawsuit by St Luke’s against Sutter.
* In 2007, Sutter affiliate CPMC merged with St. Luke’s. That summer, CPMC revealed plans to close acute care at St Luke’s by the end of 2009.
* When faced with a Supervisors resolution to begin a medical redlining lawsuit against CPMC, CPMC agreed to convene a Blue Ribbon Panel on the Future of St Luke’s Hospital.
* The Blue Ribbon Panel met from March to July, 2008, and ultimately reached a consensus recommendation that St Luke’s be rebuilt.
* Since then, CPMC has altered or retreated from various Blue Ribbon Panel recommendations.
