A message from CEO Dr. Susan Ehrlich in response to COVID-19


The past few weeks have brought extraordinary challenges to the team here at Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG), as well as new opportunities to serve our San Francisco community.

ZSFG and the San Francisco Department of Public Health have been working together tirelessly to educate the community about COVID-19, to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in San Francisco, and to prepare to test and care for large numbers of people, should that be necessary. We are consistently working in close collaboration with all our City partners to keep our citizens safe and healthy. And we are grateful to work with such an amazing team of dedicated individuals right here at ZSFG.

Together, we are ready to treat anyone who walks through our doors.

Because of you, we opened the doors in 2016 to our new acute care and trauma center and are now equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. With many more negative pressure treatment ICU rooms, a much larger emergency department, and single-occupancy inpatient and emergency department rooms, we are able to care for San Franciscans in our new facility better than ever before. 

With a connected electronic medical records system, we have the technology to work in unison – to keep our patients and our community safe. We are committed to sharing accurate information on preventative measures and intent on providing our staff with the resources to respond to fear and concern in their own communities.

ZSFG will always be the place where anyone, at any time of day, can find the help they need. In times of trauma and crisis, the physicians and staff here are the ones you want on your team.

The current health crisis is a challenge we couldn’t face without our whole community united. Resources from local and state government help ensure we have the tools we need to treat our patients. But assistance from our neighbors, and contributions from those who are thankful that we are here in times of greatest need – that support is invaluable.

Your generosity to the Foundation ensures that those on the front lines of this crisis have a back-up, have someone in their corner. Your support has equipped us for moments like these, helping us prepare for the unimaginable while caring for this city day in day out.

Thank you for believing in and supporting ZSFG and the Foundation.

With gratitude,

Susan P. Ehrlich, MD, MPP
Chief Executive Officer, Zuckerberg San Francisco General
Board Member, San Francisco General Hospital Foundation
