The Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center is being recognized by the American Heart Association for providing high-quality care to stroke and heart failure patients.
Kaiser Permanente San Francisco received the Get With The Guidelines®-Heart Failure Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award – acknowledging the hospital’s commitment to ensuring heart failure patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines founded in the latest scientific evidence. The goal is speeding recovery and reducing hospital readmissions for heart failure patients.
Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center is among the top 50 hospitals in California for providing high-quality care, according to the U.S. News and World Report’s 2020-2021 “Best Hospitals” rankings.

Kaiser Permanente San Francisco is “high performing” for two specialties that are used by the magazine to assess hospital performance: geriatrics and pulmonology and lung surgery. It is also listed as “high performing” for four, procedures or common conditions: aortic valve surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart bypass surgery, and heart failure care.
