Solid Start at Zuckerberg San Francisco General

Encircling all pregnant women, children and families at ZSFG with the resources and care to allow them the best chance for success.

The mission of the Solid Start initiative is to promote health and health equity by developing and evaluating innovative models of integrated care for pregnant women and families with children 0 – 3 at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. This includes ensuring that the social, legal, mental health and behavioral needs of families are incorporated systematically into quality care delivery across ZSFG clinical settings. 

Over time, the Solid Start Initiative will serve as an innovation hub whose aim is to facilitate best practices, improve data collection and evaluation, attract funding and promote model dissemination to strengthen, sustain, study, scale, and showcase best practices within ZSFG, the broader San Francisco safety net, and regional and national communities.
