Laguna Honda Submits Application for Medicare Recertification

August 24, 2023

With approval to receive Medi-Cal funding, the 150-year-old public hospital will continue to serve the City's most vulnerable residents.

In a major victory for the City and County of San Francisco, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) on August 16, 2023 approved Laguna Honda Hospital (LHH) for Medicaid recertification, meaning critical Medicaid dollars will continue to flow to the institution. With more than 95% of LHH’s residents relying on Medicaid funding for their care, today’s action ensures that LHH will continue to serve San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents for generations to come.
