Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG)


The Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) and UC San Francisco share a 140-year history of partnership. Through an affiliation agreement with the city and county of San Francisco, UCSF leases or otherwise occupies space in exchange for services. UCSF faculty physicians provide all the medical care at SFGH. Ribbon cutting for the new hospital occurred on November 21, 2015, with full opening expected in early 2016.

UCSF at ZSFG Research and Academic Building

UCSF conducts research in support of the clinical programs at Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) in laboratory and desktop space, much of which is located in older brick buildings. UCSF is in the planning process to build a modern academic research building at ZSFG on what is currently the B/C surface parking lot. The facility, which has a projected completion date of 2019, will provide safer facilities for faculty and staff currently located in these seismically compromised buildings and also house employees from off-site leased space. Negotiations for acquiring the surface parking lot from the City are taking place. Design of the building began in early 2016. The City is considering expanding the existing garage at ZSFG. UCSF is working with the Department of Public Health and SFMTA on the garage expansion. More detailed information can be found here and will be updated on this site frequently.
