SF General Gets a Facelift
San Francisco Chronicle

For anyone driving down Potrero Ave. at 23rd street in the last three years, the construction at San Francisco General Hospital is hard to miss. The city-owned hospital is building an entirely new structure, which will eventually house the new SFGH emergency room and trauma unit. At 64 percent complete, the rebuilding project recently finished the installation of the all-steel structure and is moving on to the prefabricated brick façade, said a spokesman in an update of its progress.

To form the foundation of the new structure workers poured over 400 truckloads of cement over a two-day period.
