About Bella | Care Philosophy

Life-affirming in all we do

Our mission is to provide life-affirming, comprehensive, and personalized medical care to individuals and families in the San Francisco Bay area who seek to live long, healthy lives. 


We compassionately acknowledge the health and dignity of each patient, providing medical care with an outlook that positively views life as a sacred gift to be stewarded with care and honor our patient’s core values when they feel most vulnerable. 


We seek to care for the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—providing direct medical care and/or leveraging our referral network to ensure, whenever possible, we are treating the root cause of our patients’ issues, not simply alleviating symptoms.


We spend time and attention to build a trusting, collaborative relationship with each patient so they feel recognized as a unique human person, not just a number or a disease, and have confidence knowing they never have to face their medical decisions alone.

Our story

In December of 2015, Seton Medical Center, the last Catholic hospital serving San Francisco, was sold, removing all Catholic presence in maternal health. As a result, today, for the first time in 161 years, there is no Catholic hospital in the San Francisco area to welcome new life. Moreover, where at one time almost all healthcare was delivered by Catholic medical professionals, today there is no openly Catholic and pro-life obstetrics and gynecology practice in San Francisco—much less an approachable, friendly clinic you can trust to care for the entire family, at every age. Bella Primary Care was founded to fill this void.

So grateful to you, Dolores, that my father spent Christmas at home and not the emergency room, under your care.
