Chinese Hospital was founded in 1925 in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Its 54-bed, acute-care facility offers high-quality and culturally competent health care to the community. As more patients migrated from Chinatown to other neighborhoods, Chinese Hospital recognized the community's need for improved health care access and opened a number of community clinics. Today, there are four clinics around San Francisco, in addition to the hospital in Chinatown. A new hospital is planned for completion in 2016 and will have increased space for patient care, improved privacy and advanced medical technology.
Chinese Hospital is governed by a voluntary board of trustees broadly representative of the community, and strives to assume a leadership role in the area’s health matters. The hospital is committed to improving access to a quality, culturally sensitive and affordable health care delivery system. Services include acupuncture, cardiopulmonary, emergency care, health programs, laboratory, nursing care, pharmacy, radiology and surgery.
