    Zuckerberg San Francisco General, which underwent a name change after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, MD, donated $75 million to the hospital, is the city's largest public hospital and houses San Francisco's only top-tier trauma center.

    However, privately insured patients brought to the hospital's emergency room, either by ambulance or another form of transportation, often pay significantly more for the services they receive at Zuckerberg than they would if they went to another hospital,

    I guess it depends on your defintion of "everyone" . . .

    FWIW anyone (aka everyone) can go there but if Zuck Hospital is out of your network you will pay more.

    But you can still access that "high quality health care"
