Heart History

Sirron Norris

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation commissioned local artist Sirron Norris to commemorate 150 years of care with a very special 400 lb heart for the 2023 #HeartsinSanFrancisco sculpture series.

And for a limited time, you can own a small piece of this heart while supporting our city’s public hospital by making a gift today.

Hearts in San Francisco Project

The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.
