The San Francisco General Hospital is currently located at 1001 Potrero Avenue on a 24-acre Campus comprised of over 1.4 million square feet building space including: hospital facilities, Trauma Center Level One, emergency room facilities, clinics, ambulatory care and research facilities. The proposed project is located at the west lawn area of the existing hospital Campus. The site is within the P Public Zoning District and has an Institutional Master Plan filed with the San Francisco Planning Department. The Campus is within the 105-E bulk and height district.

Document Description
NOTE: Document consists of Comments & Responses. The San Francisco Department of Public Health (DPH) proposes to construct a new approximately 422,144 gross-square-foot, 284-bed, acute care hospital on the SFGH Campus, located at 1001 Potrero Avenue (Assessor's Block, 4154, Lot 001), to comply with requirements of Senate Bill 1953 (1994) related to the seismic safety of acute care facilities. The new hospital would be located on the west lawn along Potrero Avenue between Buildings 20 and 30 on Campus. Acute care services currently located in the existing Main Hospital (Building 5) would be relocated to the new hospital, and the vacated space in the existing Main Hospital would be reused for non-acute care medical uses and adminstrative offices. The proposed project would also include internal roadway modifications, new landscaping, utility trenching, power upgrades, and back-up generators to serve the new hospital. The internal north-south access road through the Campus would be replaced with two cul-de-sacs to provide patient/visitor access to the Main Hospital and the proposed new hospital from 23rd Street, and emergency access from 22nd Street. The main pedestrian entrance to the Campus from Potrero Avenue would be provided along the south side of the proposed new hospital, and north-south pedestrian access through the Campus would be maintained via a sidewalk that would run along the eastern side of the two new cul-de-sacs. The main entrance to the proposed new hospital would be located at the southeast corner of the building, near the primary entrance for the existing Main Hospital building.
