SF hospital to open largest burn unit in Northern California
San Francisco Examiner

St. Francis Memorial Hospital in Nob Hill is set to open the largest burn unit in Northern California early next year, a facility more than twice the size of its current burn center.

Crews in October broke ground for the new Bothin Burn Center on the fifth floor of St. Francis Memorial Hospital, which will include modern medical technology and equipment, including state-of-the-art life support, monitoring equipment and ultrasonic hydrotherapy for bathing wounds, hospital officials said Tuesday.
