Giraudo (and activists) close CPMC deal

|
(18)

The takeaway message from a July 11 press conference held in the Mayor's Office touting legislation authorizing California Pacific Medical Center's construction of two new San Francisco hospitals was seemingly this: Everyone hearts Lou Giraudo.

A part owner of Boudin Bakery and former president of the San Francisco Police Commission, Giraudo was called in last year to help mediate a deal that seemed doomed when CPMC, city officials, and a coalition of labor and community organizations were unable to hash out an agreement that was acceptable to all sides.

Negotiations have been contentious over the past year due to early indications that CPMC would not guarantee that St. Luke's, a health care facility relied upon by many low-income San Franciscans, would keep its doors open as a condition of moving forward with the new Cathedral Hill facility, a centerpiece of CPMC's $2.5 billion project.

Enter Giraudo, who was, according to a not-so-subtle hint dropped by former Mayor Willie Brown in his San Francisco Chronicle column last year, "quietly brought in" by the mayor's office to fix the half-baked mess that the CPMC deal had evidently devolved into.

Sup. David Campos sang Giraudo's praises, saying, "I have yet to meet a finer public servant," and calling Giraudo "a real hero of mine."

Giraudo himself told the Guardian that his strategy was "to de-politicize the process and get people to think about the community."

Board President David Chiu, who worked closely with Campos and Sup. Mark Farrell to negotiate with CPMC and other parties on behalf of the Board, went so far as to compare Giraudo to Batman. He even joked that he was going to shine a bat signal the next time a negotiator was needed, in hopes that Giraudo would save the day.

Yet while Giraudo may have provided the catalyst needed for a deal, it was community advocates who ensured that the public at large benefited from the CPMC plan more than they would have otherwise — since the mayor's office seemed willing to go along with the health care giant's original terms.

Long before Giraudo's involvement, a coalition of labor and community organizations waged a campaign to rebuild CPMC "the right way," holding strong on the issue of St. Lukes and refusing to agree to anything that would leave open the possibility that the hospital, a critically important facility for low-income patients, would be shuttered. "That coalition has been working for quite some time ... to save St. Lukes," Campos said of the diverse coalition of community and labor leaders, who formed under the name San Franciscans for Healthcare, Housing, Jobs and Justice. "It kept working for many years." Under the terms of the agreement that was ultimately agreed upon, St. Luke's will have a number of specified services to ensure it remains a full-service hospital, and CPMC will commit to providing services to 30,000 charity care patients and 5,400 Medi-Cal managed care patients per year. CPMC will also contribute $36.5 million to the city's affordable housing fund, and it will pay $4.1 million to replace the homes it displaces on Cathedral Hill. While many advocates for San Francisco's most vulnerable populations heralded the deal, some were disheartened that it did not dedicate space for psychiatric care.

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Micheal weinrich i live in UK,and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids What a beautiful and wonderful testimony some time things you don’t believe can just happen.two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{osobaspelltemple@mail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {5}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {osobaspelltemple@mail.com},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the voodoo temple for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{osobaspelltemple@mail.com}
Thanks…

Dr. Dele is truly gifted and special. I consider him a friend because he looks out for my best interest and tells truth even though it may hurt. He gives the most amazing advice and told me things in a reading that somehow he just knew that only I and the person I love would only know. He is honest, direct and kind. He is accurate with his readings. I have had a passion spell performed for me and because of him the man that I love continually wants to see me and spend time with me. Thank you Dr. Dele and the Spirits, because of you I have a clearer understanding of my situation and how to move forward with my best interest in mind.

Contact Dr. Dele if you really want get the best of love on dr.delespiritualtemple@gmail.com

My name is Caroline. I lost the most important person in my life for about 8 months .. He was already with another which kills me. We were once very close until everything suddently changed. All I know is that I loved him with everything that I have and I want to be in his life. His name is Jaeger. I could not stop thinking about him. He is in everything I do or say. I needed him to recognize the love we once shared and have it over whelm him to the point of wanting me back too. i tried every thing in my capacity to get him back but he said he has moved on and does not love me any more and that he has started a new life.
i almost lost all hope until i contacted dr igodo am happy to say that after 48 hrs that dr igodo cast a reunion spell for me my man came back to me and left the other lady we have been together as we used to be now for months.
Thank you dr igodo for restoring my relationship and happiness.

Thomson smith

Hi My name is “Thomson smith” just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage…I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce… I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn’t want to loose her but everything just didn’t work out… she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr. solution who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used roots and herbs… Within 7 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with their problems across the world so great solutiontemple7@gmail.com Please help me thank him for his great work in my life.

I am Crysel from Canada, wants to say a big thank you thankyou thank you to Dr. Ikhine spell for everything. To everyone who doesn’t believe in spell, I wasone of those ones at first. I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to do this since I’ve tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonies of other people at this website and after I talked to Dr. Ikhine who answered all my questions and was very nice and sincere about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my Lover back. So my story is that I was at my office when the man I am in love with told me that he wasn’t in love with me and never will it be and that he didn’t want to speak or see me again,
especially since he was talking to this other girl.
When I talked to Dr. Ikhine about it, he let me
know which spells would be most appropriate for
me and I chose the ones that was to get him
back to me and stay with me and want to marry
me. As soon as he started on the spells, my lover
came back into my life! It was a miracle to me
and I’m so thankful to Dr Ikhine. Since them things has been going on well, according to what Dr. Ikhine said is going to be. He’s always there
when you need him,you can contact him via agbadado@gmail.com or call him +2347060552255.
