St. Luke’s Campus
The St. Luke’s Campus is approximately 3.6 acres in size, bounded by Cesar Chavez Street, Valencia Street, Duncan Street, San Jose Avenue, and 27th Street. The campus currently contains eight buildings: the Main Hospital, the 1912 Building, the Monteagle Medical Center, the 1957 Building, the Hartzel Building, the Redwood Administrative building, a portable MRI Trailer, and a parking garage. The total floor space on the campus is approximately 450,000 gross square feet, with 345 existing parking spaces. The St. Luke’s Campus is located in the RH-2 Zoning District (Residential House, Two-Family) and is split between the 105-E and 65-A Height and Bulk Districts.
In March 2008, following CPMC’s acquisition of St. Luke’s in 2007, a Blue Ribbon Panel was established in response to CPMC’s proposal to close St. Luke’s Hospital. The Blue Ribbon Panel was charged with creating a viable plan for an acute care hospital and outpatient services at St. Luke’s.
The proposal for St. Luke’s Campus includes the construction of a new approximately 142-foot tall, seven-story, 214,061-gsf, 120-bed acute-care hospital. Based on the recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Panel, the new hospital will be located to the west of the existing hospital, on the campus’ existing surface parking lot and over a portion of San Jose Avenue. The existing hospital will remain in operation during construction of the new hospital. Once the new hospital is operational, the existing hospital would be demolished, followed by the construction of a new medical office building/expansion building in a similar location. The new MOB would include approximately 104,000 gross square feet of floor area and would be five-stories tall. The MOB is subject to San Francisco’s Green Building Ordinance and will achieve a minimum of LEED Gold Certification.
The St. Luke’s Campus will also include a Streetscape Master Plan in order to appropriately plan and design public realm improvements surrounding and within the campus.

California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC), a Sutter Health affiliate, is a general medical and surgical hospital and academic medical center in San Francisco.
California Pacific Medical Center is a combination of four former San Francisco medical institutions: Pacific Presbyterian Hospital, Children’s Hospital of San Francisco, Davies Medical Center, and St. Luke’s Hospital. They are now known, respectively, as the Pacific Campus (2333 Buchanan Street, San Francisco), the California Campus (3700 California Street), Davies Campus (Castro & Duboce Streets), and the St. Luke’s Campus (3555 Cesar Chavez Street) of California Pacific Medical Center.
The former St. Luke’s Hospital officially merged with CPMC in January 2007. It[clarification needed] had been an affiliate of Sutter Health since 1996.
CPMC hosts the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute, which conducts basic science and clinical studies into a range of topics. Michael Rowbotham, M.D. is Senior Scientist and Scientific Director of the research institute.
What is CPMC?
California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is made up of four of the oldest medical centers in San Francisco, consisting of the California Campus (previously known as the Children’s Hospital of San Francisco), Pacific Campus (previously known as the Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center), Davies Campus (previously Ralph K. Davies Hospital), and St. Luke’s Campus.
History of CPMC
CPMC was formed in 1991 by the merger of Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of San Francisco. Ralph K. Davies Medical Center became the third campus of CPMC in 1998; and on January 1, 2007, St. Luke’s Hospital became CPMC’s fourth campus.
Hospital, Clinic, and Research Facilities
Each of the four campuses contain a hospital and an emergency department, and provide inpatient and outpatient services. In addition to the hospital campuses, CPMC owns and/or operates multiple outpatient clinics, a research facility and several other properties more fully described in the most recent Institutional Master Plan (IMP) document.
CPMC is one of three hospitals that operate hospital facilities at more than one location within San Francisco (the other two are Kaiser and UCSF). St. Francis Memorial and St. Mary’s Medical Center operate as independent facilities, although both are a part of the Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) system.
State law (SB 1953) requires that all acute-care hospitals be seismically upgraded such that they are operational after a major earthquake. CPMC is one of four hospitals in the City currently planning to build new facilities to comply with this law; the other three hospitals include UCSF, SF General Hospital, and Chinese Hospital.
Three of CPMC’s four acute-care hospitals must be rebuilt or de-licensed in order to comply with state law, including the hospitals at California, Pacific, and St. Luke’s Campus’. The Davies Campus was retrofitted in 2008, enabling this campus to accommodate acute-care hospital services until 2030.
