About Us


Saint Francis Memorial Hospital first opened its doors in 1905 when it was founded by five prominent San Francisco doctors. Today we are a fully accredited community-based hospital caring for the diverse population of San Francisco.

Located atop Nob Hill, Saint Francis is home to the largest burn center in Northern California, the Bothin Burn Center, the Center for Sports Medicine, the Saint Francis Orthopedic Institute, and the Phoebe Cowles Center for Comprehensive Pain Treatment, to name a few.

With its close proximity to downtown San Francisco, we treat thousands of workers, international visitors and domestic tourists every year.
