Opening of new S.F. General Hospital pushed back
San Francisco Chronicle

The opening of San Francisco General’s new nine-story, 283-bed hospital scheduled for December has been pushed back to the spring to allow more time to test new technologies and to train staff to use them, according to public health officials. San Francisco’s health director, Barbara Garcia, told the city’s Health Commission in a report this week that the public hospital’s opening has been “adjusted to accommodate the advanced technologies and critical care services that we will provide as the city’s only trauma center.”
