Doctor Listening to Patient Lungs

Emergency Department Renovation

St. Mary’s Medical Center (SMMC) has a rich history of welcoming all patients from the disenfranchised to the thriving. SMMC is proud to be the oldest continuously operating hospital in the city. As a full-service facility, we're home to the nation’s first digital cardiac catheterization laboratory, innovative orthopedic and spine care, state-of-the-art cancer center, comprehensive rehabilitation programs, the only in-patient adolescent behavioral health program in SF and a vibrant emergency services department.

St. Mary’s ED staff currently cares for more than 20,000 emergency patients each year, with the expectation that this number will rise in the coming years. As one of a few hospitals on the west side of the City, our 24/7 Emergency Department (ED) is impacted by the homeless and mentally unstable from nearby Haight Street and Golden Gate Park. This issue is compounded in our ED when opposite worlds collide all requiring emergency care in a confined space. This project will create a separate and more secure place for behavioral health patients, allowing for an increase of patient care capacity and appropriate separation between behavioral and medical patients.

The Foundation has committed to raising $750,000 toward the total renovation of the Emergency Department, and we are $90,000 away from meeting our goal. Please click here to make a contribution today.
