Hospital News & Updates

Lisa Nash

One August morning, as Lisa Nash was en route to her San Francisco office, an unexpected event unfolded. An underground transformer malfunctioned, resulting in a fiery explosion that left her severely burned and unconscious. The rapid and effective response from our dedicated firefighters, the compassionate medical staff, and comprehensive healthcare services at San Francis Memorial Hospital proved instrumental, ultimately saving her life and initiating an extraordinary journey to recovery.

Grateful for the pivotal role that Saint Francis played in her recovery, Lisa reflected, “Saint Francis was my lifeline during those challenging times. I am forever grateful for their unwavering commitment to my well-being.”

In a wonderful turn of events, we are delighted to share the news that Lisa Nash has recently been appointed as the Mayor of San Mateo, the largest city in the Peninsula. In light of this achievement, the Saint Francis Foundation would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Lisa. Her inspiring journey serves as a powerful reminder of the unpredictable nature of emergencies and underscores the critical importance of accessible, top-tier healthcare. We are proud to have played a part in Lisa’s remarkable story of triumph and wish her continued success in her new role as Mayor.
