The last two years have shown us all that Zuckerberg San Francisco General is at the center of public health for our city. 

In the face of stay-at-home orders, the team designed new ways of providing check-ups and sharing health education. In-person visits turned into a chance to send families home with much-needed groceries and supplies.  And advancements in the lab were delivered quickly to our community.

Despite a global pandemic, health care happens here.
