Laguna Honda Hospital (LHH) is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility. It provides a range of services to San Franciscans who are disabled and chronically ill, including specialized care for those with wounds, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord and orthopedic injury, HIV/AIDS, and dementia. 

As of 2019, Laguna Honda Hospital included 780 skilled nursing and acute level of care beds. Patients categorized as skilled nursing rehab patients are patients receiving rehabilitative services for the effects of illnesses and injuries such as stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, and other major traumas. Acute patients generally have a shorter length of stay and require more rehabilitative sessions than skilled nursing patients.

SFHN is a comprehensive system of care, overseen by the Department of Public Health (DPH), which includes primary and specialty care, dentistry, emergency and trauma treatment, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, and behavioral health. SFHN includes Laguna Honda Hospital, the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, and numerous primary care clinics managed by the Department of Public Health.

NOTE: Laguna Honda Hospital suspended new admissions beginning March 2022  due to the Closure Plan effective 5/14/22. The hospital is current undergoing recertification efforts. Future targets may fluctuate and will depend on when LHH recertifies and can resume admissions. It is the goal to resume target development once the recertification process has been completed. These data were collected for FY22 but show the effects of the Closure Plan and recertification process.
