SF General Hospital gets new name with Mark Zuckerberg donation

A multimillion dollar gift by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is set to transform San Francisco General Hospital in more ways than one.

On behalf of San Francisco General Hospital, the City’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to formally accept a $75 million gift from Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan.

It’s believed to be the largest single private gift by individuals to a U.S. public hospital.
