Newsweek’s rankings spotlight hospitals demonstrating an unparalleled commitment to quality healthcare and patient well-being. In its inaugural year of receiving this esteemed recognition, Chinese Hospital proudly stands among those acknowledged for their commitment to excellence.

“We’re honored to be recognized among the best hospitals across the nation,” stated Dr. Jian Zhang, CEO of Chinese Hospital. “Over the past few years, Chinese Hospital has undergone a transformative journey, growing and evolving into a leading healthcare provider by establishing partnerships with some of the best health systems in the San Francisco Bay Area and the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH). This national recognition serves as validation of our team’s growth mindset and collective commitment to providing access and delivering world-class, equitable care to our patients at every level and in every community we serve.”

Beyond the accolades from Newsweek, Chinese Hospital consistently demonstrates excellence in safety and quality across various healthcare rating systems, receiving an “A” grade from The Leapfrog Group in Spring 2023 and a 4-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

“Even in the face of limited resources, we are steadfast in delivering quality care to the communities we serve. This achievement is a source of immense pride, underscoring the hard work, exceptional skills, and unwavering dedication of our teams,” said Dr. Kin Yee, Chair of Chinese Hospital Board.

Chinese Hospital, the only independent hospital in San Francisco, has consistently expanded its services over the past 124 years to meet the diverse needs of communities in San Francisco and northern San Mateo County. The dedication to excellence surpasses mere rankings, reflecting an unwavering commitment to continual improvement.

As a community hospital, Chinese Hospital continues to broaden its geographical footprint and impact by cultivating meaningful partnerships with UCSF Health, the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH), and Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG). The steadfast dedication remains resolute, driven by the goal to deliver exceptional care, foster innovation, and positively transform lives within the communities served.

  • Hospital quality metrics from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services was available for mortality, safety, readmission, experience, and timely and effective care;
  • The implementation of Patient Reported Outcome Measures online survey (completed by patients to measure their perception of their functional well-being and quality of life).
