San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center

: Architectural rendering of the a view from Potrero Street to the proposed, newly constructed San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center main hospital building with historic buildings to each s

San Francisco General Hospital consists of buildings that were constructed as early as 1915 to as recent as 2008. The facility includes a full service hospital, community clinics, long term care wards, research facilities, leased research facilities, administrative offices, and support facilities. In 2008, San Francisco voters approved an $887.4 million dollar bond to replace the existing, primary hospital building (Building 5) with a newly constructed facility. SF General Hospital Rebuild is planned for occupancy in 2015. From 2015 through 2021, clinics, administrative offices, and long-term care facilities will migrate from older buildings to the new facility. Other programs will be integrated into the older hospital structures to permit the City to seismically renovate the older buildings on campus. The seismic alterations will provide the opportunity to upgrade these facilities for full accessibility.

In the interim, the ADA UFAS Transition Plan and other Capital Improvement programs are providing a minimum level of accessible infrastructures to all public areas of the campus.

A City-owned Usable, but not fully accessible, facility that is undergoing significant ADA Transition Plan improvements which will be replaced with new construction.

SFGH Rebuild Project is under design and due for occupancy in 2015 and will be fully accessible.

Between 2006 and 2009, the ADA Transition Plan has funded $1.686 million in construction of accessible public toilet rooms at the main check in and check out lobbies, Traumatic Brain Injury Teaching Toilet, and a public toilet in X-ray and Ward 6F.

Between 2007 and 2009, the ADA Transition Plan funded $1.396 million for an accessible signage, including wayfinding and egress system signage in Building 5 and other campus buildings having public programs. The program involves procurement and installation of more than fifty-thousand signs, directories, and way-finding maps.

Between 2007 and 2013 the ADA Transition Plan funded a development of facility plans, which were required to develop the master plan for accessible patient and public toilet rooms. The overall program will provide a minimum of one accessible patient room with toilets in each ward and clinic, and an accessible shared patient toilet and shower room per ward. The project is phased in order to not adversely disrupt patient care and operations in the existing facility. This $6.277 million dollar program seeks to deliver:

  • Thirteen (13) accessible patient rooms with toilets
  • Nine (9) accessible shared toilet and shower rooms in the core of a ward,
  • Thirteen (13) pairs of unisex public toilet rooms
  • Hallway handrails in various Floor 6 Wards.

A second phase to the ADA Transition Plan program is to upgrade waiting area and counseling conference rooms with accessible signage, door hardware, visual alarms and, where applicable, TTY units.

SFGH conducted other post-ADA alterations to provide accessible public toilets in the Emergency Ward and accessible patient rooms in Ward 6D.
