SF hospital reflects on Asiana crash while looking ahead to new facilities
San Francisco Examiner

It’s not every day that 25 ambulances stream into San Francisco General Hospital back-to-back. But that’s what happened July 6 after the crash-landing of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 at San Francisco International Airport.

Of the more than 300 passengers and flight crew onboard, 181 were injured — 12 critically — and three killed.

As the one-year anniversary of the crash approaches, the hospital that treated 67 of the victims within six hours of the incident is reflecting on what became an emotional and life-altering day for doctors, nurses and other staff.
