The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) and the San Francisco Planning Department are currently developing an updated HCSMP, for anticipated adoption in 2018. The purpose of the 2018 HCSMP is to identify current and projected needs for healthcare services in San Francisco, with a focus on vulnerable populations. The main goals of the 2018 HCSMP include:

  • Provide the most current and available local and state data describing health care services, capacity, utilization, and distribution of health care services
  • Highlight health disparities and critical healthcare and development issues that have emerged since 2013
  • Conduct an updated assessment of land use controls and trends in medical use development
  • Update the HCSMP Consistency Determination guidelines
  • Develop supporting legislation and longer-term policy recommendations to improve access to care
