San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH)

San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center provides comprehensive patient care for the residents of San Francisco regardless of their ability to pay. UCSF has been affiliated with San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) since 1884 and shares in the mission of providing quality healthcare and trauma services with compassion and respect. SFGH is the only trauma center (Level 1) in the City and County of San Francisco and serves 1.5 million residents of San Francisco and northern San Mateo County. SFGH is in the process of building a new main hospital on site, with a planned opening in 2015.

SFGH has a long history as a major-academic tertiary care medical center. Infectious diseases has played an important role in shaping SFGH. In the 1980s, some of the nation’s first AIDS patients were cared for at SFGH, and the hospital became a model for AIDS and HIV care. Established in 1983 as one of the first HIV clinics in the country, the HIV clinic located at Ward 86 cares for nearly 3000 HIV-infected San Francisco residents.
