San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (SFGH) is an essential part of San Francisco’s health care system serving some 100,000 patients each year and providing 20 percent of the city’s inpatient care. Recognized as one of the nation’s top hospitals, it serves the community with a full complement of inpatient, outpatient, emergency, diagnostic and psychiatric services for adults and children 24-hours a day.
Considered one of the finest public hospitals, SFGH is the city’s busiest emergency room and the only Level 1 Trauma Center providing life-saving care to the 1.5 million adults and children of San Francisco and northern San Mateo County. More than 3,900 trauma patients are treated annually with a comprehensive range of resources. In 2011, SFGH became the first hospital in the country to be certified for a Traumatic Brain Injury program.
SFGH and the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine (UCSF) have been partners in public health since 1872, making SFGH one of the nation’s top academic medical centers. The research conducted at SFGH has led to many important breakthroughs in the area of HIV/AIDS, the effects of smoking, the treatment of tuberculosis and other key issues.
