    Bayview Child Health Center



    Every child deserves high-quality health care close to home. At Bayview Child Health Center, it’s our mission to make sure the children in our community are no exception. That’s why our clinic is located in the heart of San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood and offers a full range of services to all children. For families that are uninsured, we offer our pediatric services regardless of ability to pay. We welcome walk-in appointments and our providers speak Spanish. Our team partners with families to care for children throughout every stage of development.

    History

    CPMC, Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, and CPMC Foundation responded to a compelling community need when they collaborated to open Bayview Child Health Center in 2007. In Bayview-Hunters Point, approximately 10,000 children are poor and carry a disproportionate burden of disease and disability. For example, one-sixth of all the children living in Bayview have asthma, a higher rate than in any other part of the city. The center has had an immediate impact on its patients’ health; immunization and asthma hospitalization rates for BCHC patients have significantly improved over neighborhood and citywide averages.
