Chinese Hospital's Plans Set For Approval As CPMC's Are Stalled
As we reported in July, "while most eyes remain on the wrangling between CPMC and Mayor Ed Lee, San Francisco’s Planning Commission is scheduled to certify the Chinese Hospital’s development and expansion plans, plans which require a zoning variance, conditional use authorization, and a General Plan amendment."
Having been approved by Planning, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors are scheduled to certify the Chinese Hospital’s development and expansion plans this afternoon.
While CPMC’s long-range development and expansion plans were also approved by Planning, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors have refused to affirm and stalled as the Mayor has since upped his previously agreed upon demands and CPMC sent their pre-construction teams packing.
Once again, as the existing building at 835 Jackson Street and area currently appear:

Well, when a big one hits and most of the hospitals in the city pancake, at least I'll know where to go. Too bad I don't speak Chinese.

Glad to see this project get approved and begin the work. Much needed facility.

You could go to any of the hospitals that already do (or will soon) meet seismic requirements that all CA hospitals have to adhere to in 2015: SFGH, USCF, St Mary's, St Francis, Kaiser, etc.

@kg - It's OK that you're not smart enough to know how to speak Chinese. The doctors know how to speak English.
