After many months of staff training and preparation, the doors of the beautiful new Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center are just weeks away from opening! In celebration of this historic occasion, we are delighted to share with you a series of videos that illustrate why our hospital is so vital to the health and well-being of every San Franciscan.
The first video highlights our new and expanded Osher Emergency Department and Trauma Center. Did you know that everyone who suffers a traumatic injury in our city – whether resident or tourist and regardless of insurance – is first brought to Zuckerberg San Francisco General? We have the only trauma center (Level 1) serving San Francisco and northern San Mateo counties, which means specialists are on site 24/7 providing the highest level of care. Built using the most advanced seismic-resistant design known today, our new Emergency Department more than doubles our current size and capacity, ensuring that our hospital will be uniquely equipped to answer the call when tragedy strikes.
We are so grateful to you, our amazing community of supporters, who helped us raise more than $141 million to outfit the new building with state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Thank you for standing by us and supporting this vital institution!
