California Northstate University responds to Stokelake HOA opposition, says project will lift property values

In response to the letter released by the homeowners association for Stonelake residents stating their opposition to a proposed hospital, California Northstate University has issued a statement regarding their 400-bed hospital project in the Stonelake neighborhood.

The statement, from spokesperson Brian Holloway, said:

“Elk Grove deserves its own hospital and California Northstate University is committed to working with the community and the City to make this a reality. The CNU Medical Center and Teaching hospital will save lives by lowering emergency response times and providing critical Level II Trauma Care. It also will create jobs, raise property values and graduate future generations of physicians who will live and raise families in Elk Grove. CNU has been completely transparent and will continue our extensive efforts to reach out to residents and business, seek their input, and address concerns with positive solutions and a commitment to build a medical center that will serve the needs of the entire Elk Grove community.”

The proposed hospital is located in Elk Grove's City Council District 1 on the city's far southwest corner. With the advent of the city's new by-district form of elections for 2020, the issue of the proposed hospital is poised to be a significant campaign issue for incumbent councilmember and project supporter Darren Suen as he seeks reelection and any opponents should they declare their candidacy.
