Silicon Valley Business Journal

Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, are giving $75 million to San Francisco General Hospital, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The donation — one of the largest private gifts from individuals to a public hospital in the U.S. — will help fund equipment and technology at the hospital’s new inpatient tower, slated to open by the end of 2015. Like hospitals throughout the state, the San Francisco General is being rebuilt to meet new seismic safety standards. The rebuild is primarily financed with a $887.4 million bond measure.
