for happy holidays and to the public as well happy holidaholps good afternoon. welcome happy holidays welcome to city hall today, we have a wonderful announcement but let me put it in some context for you and quite candidly it is personal for a couple reasons one i don't know if bernard tyson knows this
9:24 am
i like the number 5 i was born in the 5th day the 52 year and something along those links is good i'm happy to welcome bernard tyson the chief executive officer for kaiser permanente to make this announcement second reason i want to kind of put this in context a few weeks ago the council released a report that confirms what i think we've been seeing for quite some time the health care industry in san francisco is the number one employment and economic quack industry in all our industrial settings over $23 billion impact in our local economy and certainly a great employer of thousands of people
9:25 am
many are standing beside me and around me i want to welcome our director of public health department barbara and supervisor london breed as well as our director of our san francisco foundation for a black well here as well so the health care industry a big driver of the economy lots of jobs but ultimately it is also and, of course, i want to welcome in our supervisor cohen who i just saw come on up supervisor in addition to jobs i know there's a great reason why there's at least 5 major hospitals under construction today in san francisco we care about health not just the hospitals not just when people walk in for treatment
9:26 am
health has already been as barbara taught us and bernard taught us and onsite others it's about what we do everyday to keep ourselves healthy you'll hear from people like supervisor london breed and supervisor malia cowen certainly fred black well is 80 about healthy community this is affordable unit as important as building hospitals and communities about our youth and families and the things we do to keep families intact this is all part of this health discussion we have it is b also about programs fred and i worked on and hope sf by giving people who are in the worse probably housing settings probably not
9:27 am
taking care of themselves as well as they should and providing them with a basis of hope this is the context in which i wanted to present one of my highest priorities that's making sure that people have access to health to health insurance and quality health care but also to the very basic commitment to themselves and their families they should take care of themselves at the eater eater stages for me as a lifetime member of kaiser health, i love the fact that everybody knows about the theme of writing i've had to teach myself how to thrive because in my youth youths that was all about i ant sick and many i am carvings will take care of me nowadays it's about before you every walk in its what wear
9:28 am
trying to teach our workforce i was r have a 29 thousand workforce are they all in shape no way we're trying to thrive even better so this announcement today is significant for those reasons it is about our most challenged population in the city it's about a health institution that cares more than just when people walk 0 into the institutions and clinics how they can be better thriving on their own about our programs we run on an everyday basis question have the crisis interconnections we wouldn't have to be there if people took care of themselves while all of the programs we've been caring about whether hope
9:29 am
sf or our numerous housing programs and whether you it's the kinds of things we're doing to assess health care are part of this announcement today, i'm pleased to announce a significant donation from kaiser to help us achieve ero our health care goals in the entire city today kaiser is donating $5.5 million to unfortunate in our families in san francisco (clapping.) that number is 5 is a good number a great number and i want to breakdown a little bit further as to how this particular donation because i understand in the future there will be other doomgz that kaiser is a part of they're a great
9:30 am
company and organization but their into health care more than the hospitals and treatment hope sf is something i've been working on since way before my mayorship it is something that fred blackwell worked on well before his awe acceptance to the director of the san francisco foundation and now we're bringing more people now the boss of the program and carl is helping her find all the source that we could asthmatic together what we think is going to be necessary to be at least a $300 million goal program to build the distressed housing in the city it not about the brick and mortar but people first, this is why
