Chinese Hospital of San Francisco

San Francisco, CA


In 1925, the Chinese Hospital opened its doors on Jackson Street, offering services designed around the language and culture of their patients, who spoke little or no English. In 1979 the hospital added a 24-bed building. In 2016, a new 8-story, $200M replacement hospital building with 88 beds was added to the site. The existing “1979 building” was converted to medical administration and outpatient center.

Exante360 Contribution

Exante360 was invited late to the project at a time when construction was well underway. For the next few years, Exante360 provided ICT design and consulting services that included infrastructure cabling and pathways, security, wireless, audio visual, CATV, nurse call, IT network design and DAS. Exante360 was also responsible for establishing BIM models, preparing OSHPD submittals, and technology design for make ready work, existing building renovation, and the remodel of a nearby clinic.

Benefit to the Client

Exante360 was able to pick up and run with this project quickly, despite being about as late to the table as can be. We were able to produce OHSPD drawings in short order, and helped the client with keeping the technology portion of the project on track for the remainder of the project.

Operations Perspective

Designing healthcare technology systems for a hospital is always quite involved. This particular project included unique challenges along the lines of space management given the relative small footprint (downtown San Franciso) combined with the needs/requirements of a full-blown modern hospital.
