San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) has been providing healthcare at the Potrero Avenue site since 1872. It is the only Level 1 Trauma Center for residents of San Francisco and northern San Mateo County. The SFGH Campus provides a full complement of general acute care, outpatient, emergency, skilled nursing, diagnostic mental health and rehabilitation services for adults and children. To comply with Senate Bill 1953, which mandates seismic safety of acute care facilities, SFGH proposes to construct a new 422,144 square foot acute care hospital with up to 284 beds and relocate the acute care facilities in the existing Main Hospital on the Campus to the proposed hospital.
LSA was selected to prepare the EIR, which analyzes the physical impacts of constructing and operating the new hospital, relocation of existing of acute care uses into the new facility, backfilling of the vacated space of the existing Main Hospital, and consolidation and relocation of other uses on Campus. Issues of concern were visual quality; cultural resources; transportation, circulation and parking; air quality; and noise. Greenhouse gas emissions were calculated and analyzed in the air quality section of the EIR.
