The Community Needs Assessment Breakfast on Tuesday, September 27 was a success, with community, health, and elected officials in attendance to celebrate the completion of the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), done through the San Francisco Health Improvement Partnership (SFHIP).
The health care industry is a $28 billion economic engine that drives San Francisco. It employs 121,000 people, more than any other sector in the city. Nearly $5 billion will be spent to build five new hospitals before the decade is out. The city’s health sector serves as the epicenter of global innovation, with more than 100 biotechnology companies, bringing the region’s wizardry to bear on some of the most vexing medical problems known to humanity.
In July, 2003 San Francisco started dealing with chronic street alcoholics a bit differently, with the goal of getting them out of pricey hospital emergency rooms and into a “sobering” center where they can tap into the system of long-term help.

Overview of Supervisor Campos Ordinance 300-10
San Francisco Ordinance No. 300-10, which was sponsored by Supervisor David Campos and became effective January 2, 2011, requires the creation of a Health Care Services Master Plan to identify the current and projected needs for health care services within San Francisco and to guide land use decisions for health care-related projects. The Ordinance’s provisions fall largely into two categories: 1) development of the Health Care Services Master Plan; and 2) consistency of certain land use projects with the Health Care Services Master Plan.
