In response to national healthcare reform, the Department of Public Health has undertaken several initiatives, including building a world-class trauma center and developing a citywide health network. Having functioned historically as a safety net provider for vulnerable populations, the San Francisco Health Network is now also working to become the region’s provider of choice. The Department hired FUSE Executive Fellow Patti Birbiglia to help advance its mission to protect and promote the health of all San Franciscans by better connecting community members with the wide array of exceptional services available to them.
