Kate Smith

On behalf of the SFF Board and staff, I am honored to serve as Interim President of the Saint Francis Foundation at this important juncture. As we emerge from the pandemic, our philanthropic work to support the hospital and our dedicated family of community partners has never been more important. The entire Foundation team remains steadfast in our mission to make San Francisco a healthier, safer place for all, while also ensuring that Saint Francis Memorial Hospital continues to thrive as a vibrant and transformational force for good in our community.

I look forward to leading the Foundation as we amplify our focus on programs and services that support Healthcare Innovation & Transformation, Crisis Management & Response, Aging, and Behavioral & Mental Health – all across a healthcare landscape that has been forever changed in the aftermath of COVID-19. Together, we will continue the Saint Francis legacy of bringing medical excellence and compassionate care to everyone in our community.

-Kate Smith, Interim President
