Please join Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center & San Franciscans for Healthcare, Housing, Jobs & Justice to:

* learn about recent cuts at St Luke’s Hospital,

* discuss community needs for the new St. Luke’s, and

* learn the community benefits won in the campaign keep St. Luke’s open.

Please bring questions and find out how we move forward from this great success.

The battle to save St. Luke's Hospital from being closed by Sutter Health and CPMC was won against overwhelming odds, and a textbook example of successful collaboration of labor and community groups. (For an interesting 15-minute in-depth video investigation of this fight, see .)

Now, however, begins fight the force CPMC and Sutter to honor the commitments they made to St. Luke's. Already, CPMC has made cuts and issued statements signaling an intention to return to their past policies of racist medical redlining combined with a new twist: neighborhood gentrification. As the only hospital besides SF General in the poor, minority, medically-underserved SouthEast sector of San Francisco, St. Luke's must be kept alive, thriving, and configured to meet community needs.

Please join us at the Community Briefing.
