SAN FRANCISCO, CA, On February 4, 2019, the current two Daly City Chinese Hospital Health Services clinic locations will combine to become one. The current Skyline location, which has reached its size capacity, will merge with the new Gellert Health Services location. The Gellert location is less than 10 minutes away from the Skyline location and has a large private parking lot. It is conveniently located just off the 101 highway near the Serramonte Mall, easily accessible by transit. This move completes a multi-phase, long-term plan envisioned by our community leaders to improve health care service in broader San Francisco area.
When the Skyline facility reached capacity within a couple of years of opening its doors, Chinese Hospital management quickly realized the need for a larger, more comprehensive facility. Thus, the plan for Gellert Health Services was born. The Gellert Health Services location is designed to meet the increasing demand of comprehensive medical care in the San Mateo area. Now in its second year of service, Gellert Health Services location is well-established and equipped to provide services in one stop for our patients.
The full complement of services at Gellert include:
l Family/ Internal Medicine
l Ear, Nose & Throat
l Diabetes Center
l Imaging/ Radiology
l Laboratory services
l Health Education
l East West medicine/ Acupuncture
l CCHP member services
Dr. Jian Zhang, Chinese Hospital & Clinics CEO said, ‘We are pleased to make this move as part of our strategic vision to better serve the community.
We’ve been working diligently to establish the Gellert location to be able to integrate our patients who are currently served by the Skyline location.’
Dr. Gina Yam, Pharm.D., Chinese Hospital Director of Pharmacy and Clinics, who heads the five Chinese Hospital Health Services Clinics, including both Skyline and Gellert locations added, ‘Our team is here to make the transition as smooth as possible for our patients. As of a matter of fact, many of our patients have already discovered the new location and have been getting services there. The response has been amazing. Quite frankly, some of our patients have asked why we didn’t make this move sooner!’
The Skyline location will provide services through February 2nd, 2019.
Chinese Hospital plans to invite everyone in the community to celebrate a grand re-opening with a health fair. We will announce the date and time soon.

About Chinese Hospital
Chinese Hospital is a community-owned, not-for-profit organization based in San Francisco’s Chinatown. It is a unique healthcare system that has grown in geographic and ethnic reach. It is made-up of multiple primary care clinics, outpatient centers, a health plan and a medical group which provide healthcare services throughout San Francisco and northern San Mateo County.
Chinese Hospital’s mission is to deliver quality health care in a cost effective way and is responsive to the community’s ethnic and cultural uniqueness. It traces its roots over 100 years to 1899 when the Chinatown community opened the Tung Wah Dispensary to provide eastern and western medicines for Chinese immigrants who could not access mainstream health facilities. A brand new replacement hospital opened in 2016. Visit: www.ChineseHospital-SF.org.
