SF General Hospital hiring nurses for new facility

San Francisco General Hospital is looking to hire more than 100 registered nurses for its new $887.4 million trauma center that is set to open in December.

Nurses are being sought in specialty areas, including emergency care, medical-surgery, critical-care and perioperative services, to care for the more than 100,000 patients treated at San Francisco General Hospital annually, officials with the Department of Public Health said Monday.

Additionally, bilingual nurses who speak Spanish, Cantonese and other languages are encouraged to apply, health officials said.

Interested applicants may visit San Francisco’s human resources website at www.sfdhr.org and click on “nursing opportunities” in the departmental highlights box to fill out an application for employment.

Other hospital staff in addition to nurses will be hired for the new hospital, and those jobs also will be listed.

The new nine-story, 453,000-square-foot hospital will include two additional trauma rooms and three more operating rooms. Its capacity will double in size from the existing hospital, with the capacity to treat more than quadruple the number of beds in a major emergency.

The hospital is also poised to be the first in The City to have a base-isolated foundation, the most earthquake-resistant design known today.
