Front Line Back-Up: ZSFG COVID-19 Fund


ZSFG continues to be the front lines of a constantly evolving public health crisis. With a dedicated team and trusted emergency protocols in place, the hospital is caring for all San Franciscans. In response to the growing needs at ZSFG, the Foundation has launched the ZSFG COVID-19 Fund. This fund was designed to support hospital administration with whatever they need today, tomorrow, and in the future to care for our city.

The ZSFG COVID-19 Fund has supported projects such as medical supply purchases; increased testing capabilities; building/space reconfiguration; support and care for hospital staff and their families; and support for patients.

With an initial investment of $250,000, the Fund has grown to nearly $5 million. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve in the Bay Area, ZSFG needs your support.

ZSFG on the frontlines of COVID-19


In 2016 ZSFG opened its doors to our new acute care and trauma center and is now equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. With many more negative pressure treatment ICU rooms, a much larger emergency department, and single-occupancy inpatient and emergency department rooms, ZSFG is able to care for San Franciscans in its new facility better than ever before.

Equipped with a connected electronic medical records system, ZSFG has the technology to work in unison to keep patients and our community safe. The hospital has put emergency protocols in place including patient surge plans, isolated treatment areas and specialized training across departments. ZSFG leadership continues to find ways to increase testing capacity for patients and staff while working closely with Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control to share information and protocol procedures.

ZSFG is ready to treat anyone who walks through its doors.
