San Francisco General Hospital renovation plan unveiled
San Francisco Chronicle, April 2, 2008
San Francisco has revealed a detailed look at the renovation of San Francisco General Hospital. The $887.4 million project is set to go before voters in November, and plans include a nine-story building with 284 patient beds on the edge of the current hospital campus. The old hospital is considered seismically unsafe and under state law must be renovated or replaced by 2013. Under the plan, it would remain standing and would hold psychiatric beds, clinical laboratories, outpatient facilities, and the cafeteria.
