Topic - San Francisco General Hospital

San Francisco General Hospital is the main public hospital in San Francisco, California, and the only Level I Trauma Center serving San Francisco and northern San Mateo County. In addition to the approximately 3,500 San Francisco municipal employees, the University of California at San Francisco provides approximately 1,500 employees (including Physicians, nurses and ancillary personnel). The hospital, especially its Ward 86, was instrumental in treating and identifying early cases of AIDS. The original brick main building was replaced with a concrete one in the 1972; four remaining five-story edifices are among the tallest brick buildings in the city. The hospital is located on Potrero Avenue between the Mission District and Potrero Hill; U.S. Route 101 rounds its east side at “Hospital Curve.” - Source: Wikipedia
