Marketing & Communications Associate


San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (SFGHF) is a nimble non-profit with a high-impact mission: to provide affordable health care for the most vulnerable in the city and its neighboring counties, at the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.  The Hospital is renowned for its training and research and for providing compassionate and quality health care to 100,000 inpatients and 500,000 outpatients annually.


With the support of SFGHF’s fundraising efforts and the generosity of our donors, the Hospital has been able to provide quality health services, in addition to Level 1 trauma and 24-hour psychiatric emergency care. You may know of us from our Hearts in SF campaign and the decorated large-scale heart sculptures placed around our unique city.



Join our team and help us advance public health for all. Racial diversity and inclusion play an immense role at both the Hospital and the Foundation, and this is reflected in both our organizational values, strategic initiatives, and the diversity of our staff.
