The design of the 500,000 SF, $410-million replacement hospital and the 150,000 SF of renovations of this landmark site is about celebrating the rich history of the institution in providing free and accessible healthcare to the city’s most needy constituents while implementing state-of-the-art healthcare facilities to serve the city for the next 50 years. It is a story of celebrating a San Francisco landmark – respecting its original architectural vision and recognizing its social significance in the community thereby integrating its design into the cultural fabric of the surrounding neighborhoods.
Originally opened in the 1860s as an alms house for the poor, the Laguna Honda Hospital is now one of the country’s most advanced long-term care hospitals for seniors and adults with disabilities. It is California’s first green-certified hospital, achieving LEED silver certification in July, 2010.
