California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is the largest medical center of the Northern California-based Sutter Health health system and is the result of the merger of several of the longest established hospitals in San Francisco. It is a general medical/surgical hospital, academic medical center, and specialty hospital operating at multiple locations in San Francisco, California. Its primary campuses in San Francisco are the California Campus in Presidio Heights, the Pacific Campus in Pacific Heights, the Davies Campus in Lower Haight, and the St. Lukes campus in the Mission District. While it is a privately funded entity, CPMC has strong academic ties to the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) as well as the Geisel School of Medicine of Dartmouth College. The present-day California Pacific Medical Center had origins in over a century of combining several early San Francisco medical institutions,. Included among them were: Several of these institutions operated nursing schools (Pacific Dispensary, St. Lukes, Lane Hospitals), as well as outreach clinics (eg: St. Lukes Neighborhood Clinic, founded in 1920) during portions of their history.
