Our mission and vision
Mission: Providing the quality care, service and innovation in orthotics and prosthetics has always been our philosophy -- and recognized achievement -- of the UCSF Orthotics and Prosthetics Center. With four locations in the San Francisco, our team of professionals is united in our dedication to improving the lives of their patients.
Vision: Offering a complete range of services, our American Board Certified orthotists and prosthetists are highly experienced at providing orthotic and prosthetic treatment that is safe, fits well, has minimal weight, and maximizes function -- specifically designed for each patient.
Compassion: Empathy for patients, their families and staff is ingrained in our history and inspires our future. We do more than treat pathologies; we practice patient-centered care as the cornerstone of compassion.
Excellence: Our promise to maximize the physical potential of our patients is an enormous responsibility. We follow the highest standards of quality and safety and expect accountability from each other.
Integrity: At all times, we approach our work with openness, transparency, decency and humility. It is our responsibility to use resources wisely to facilitate the sustainability of the Orthotic and Prosthetic Centers at UCSF for generations to come.
Collaboration: We work in partnership with patients, their families, staff, providers, volunteers and donors. This spirit of respectful cooperation extends beyond our walls to our vendors, colleagues, and the community.
Equity: We embrace and find strength in the diversity of our patients, their families, staff and community. We believe all patients deserve exceptional care, the best outcomes, respect and a safe environment.
Innovation: We aspire to be leaders in orthotic and prosthetic healthcare, research, and innovation. We continually seek new and better solutions. Because healthcare improvement springs from knowledge, we foster innovative curiosity and technological discovery.
