Campos & Company vs CPMC on St. Luke’s – Tonight at 6 PM

July 9, 2009

1) I want windows if not storefronts on whatever building is on Cesar Chavez – 2 story blank wall be damned.  Cesar Chavez city planners, where are you on this?

2) Once the 26 Valencia goes away, I want Valencia St Park. (Skinny park, skinny jeans — see, it all makes sense!)

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.

    Why “NOT WANT”?

    OK, so here’s the real story: at Mission and Cesar Chavez is one of the last stronghold of the rapidly dying non-profit mafia kingdom built by Chris Daly & Mac & Co. Non profit funding goes in, and political juice spews out. They lost (resoundingly) when they went up against a local boy who wanted to build condo’s in the empty paint store space across the street. They still smart, like Kim Jung Il still smarts from his $1B for a glorified nuclear sparkler debacle. So they are playing tough with anything — and I mean anything — that tries to come into their space that does not originate in their little vat of vileness. American Apparel had no clue when they walked into this bitter broth. St. Lukes, another story. The non-profit mafia will try, but they will fail. Why? Because St. Lukes has a huge, huge fan base of people who, oh, you know, had their illnesses treated there. But that won’t stop Camppos from his provocation and posturing. Avalos is just along for the ride. They will lose.
