Your support for ZSFG supports PUBLIC HEALTH

San Francisco is a city that invests in public health. And during a global pandemic, our leaders understood what this city would need to combat COVID-19. Always based on data, science, and facts, San Francisco’s focus on public health made it the first city to shelter-in-place, saving countless lives, and forerunners in public health measures to protect our most vulnerable.


Your investment in a strong public hospital ensured that when our neighbors needed life-saving care, ZSFG was able to answer the call. Research and trials combined with compassionate care to ensure over one in three COVID patients recovered the very best care at ZSFG. And while our teams sprung into action to care for the most critically ill, our clinics continued to be a life-line for our patients, connecting families to food pantries, training patients in telemedicine, and helping our community stay healthy.
