S.F. General Hospital shows off new trauma medical center
San Francisco Chronicle

San Francisco’s new trauma medical center has technological capabilities far beyond most public hospitals, but the new building also features the human side of care with an expanded acute-care ward for the elderly, public art and a rooftop garden accessible to employees, patients and their families. The new hospital, which will open this spring, will be renamed the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center in honor of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, who donated $75 million toward the project. The contribution in February was the largest single private gift from individuals to a public hospital in the nation.
