Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco
Award winning photographer, Alex Farnum, was asked to conduct a photo shoot for my hospital recently. I work for California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, and we publish an annual report on our patient care, education, research, and community. The report also includes annual statistics, like total outpatient visits, ED visits, births, acute care & skilled nursing facility (SNF) cases, patient days, and average length of stay. CPMC also releases its financial statement for the year and what we plan to do with any excess earnings, as we are a non-profit hospital.
At any rate, when I received our annual report booklet, I was of course interested in all of the numbers, but I was immediately captivated by the photography in the handbook! Alex Farnum has done a beautiful job capturing the clinical staff that I work with. Here are a few shots from the CPMC portfolio.
