San Francisco County

Operation Access was founded in San Francisco County in 1993. Currently, three medical centers, three medical groups, more than 200 medical volunteers, and 12 community clinics, participate in our program.

Since OA's inception, over 950 low-income uninsured San Francisco residents have received donated surgical and specialty care.

OA works with the City and County of San Francisco's Healthy San Francisco program, and also actively participates in the San Francisco Community Benefit Partnership group.
