Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital

Located in the city’s multicultural Mission district, ZSFGH is the City and County hospital for San Francisco. Faculty from our division provide primary health care for the many infants, children and adolescents treated here. Caring mostly for the medically underserved, the hospital is also the designated regional trauma center.

ZSFGH provides culturally competent and sensitive medical services to children, youth and families of San Francisco, especially inner-city, high-risk and socially complex children.

The award-winning ZSFGH Asthma Clinic helps families learn more about what may be cuasing or triggering asthma in their child and what they can do to control the asthma.The team works together with the family and referring primary care provider to develop a treatment plan to prevent chronic asthma symptoms and to deal with acute asthma episodes.
