Accountant at Saint Francis Foundation

Reports to: Vice President, Finance and Operations
Location: San Francisco, California

Saint Francis Foundation ("SFF"), established in 1979, is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds that support patient care, capital improvements, and life-saving programs at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital ("the Hospital") and the Tenderloin neighborhood.

Saint Francis Memorial Hospital is San Francisco's leading non-sectarian community medical care center since 1905; it is affiliated with Dignity Health. The Hospital serves more than 100,000 outpatients annually. Located at 900 Hyde Street near downtown San Francisco, the Hospital is at the nexus of two neighborhoods of extremes -- the affluence of Nob Hill and the urban poverty of the Tenderloin. The Hospital contributed over 8.5 million cost adjusted dollars in charity care to the San Francisco community in 2011 -- Saint Francis Memorial Hospital turns no patient away!
