The mission of the Division at San Francisco General Hospital is to improve the health of all women by eliminating financial, linguistic and cultural barriers to care and to provide high quality, evidenced-based, cost-effective health care to women in the context of training and research.
Obstetrician-gynecologists and midwives at SFGH provide the full range of clinical care to a remarkably diverse population of women visiting the hospital, and the New Generation Health Center (for teens), The Women's Options Center (for family planning and pregnancy termination), Mission Neighborhood Health Center (for prenatal and well-woman care) and Excelsior Clinic (for midwifery care). At SFGH's Women's Health Center, Division faculty provide specialized care in endocrinology, gynecologic cancer, high-risk pregnancy and continuity care for a broad spectrum of ethnically diverse women.
Research by Division faculty explores multiple areas with major projects underway in family planning and reproductive tract infections.
