Event description

Description

Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center (Laguna Honda) is sad to announce the passing of Virginia Leishman.

Ms. Leishman, the hospital’s former Chief Nursing Officer, was an important pioneer in Laguna Honda’s history. Ms. Leishman began her career with the hospital in 1954 as a Director of Nursing. She led the Nursing Department with strong leadership, a vision for high quality of care, and a voice of advocacy for resident quality of life.

Having a passion for animals, Ms. Leishman initiated and supported the development of a farm and garden on hospital grounds during the 1980s. In 2013, Ms. Leishman generously donated to enhance The Virginia Leishman Farm in its current location. Her generosity ensures that residents and families have continued access to our animal therapy and horticulture program.

Ms. Leishman retired from the Department of Public Health and Laguna Honda in 1997. Of the 44 years in her role as a public nurse leader, Ms. Leishman shepherded nursing care to thousands of San Franciscans needing post-acute care, and whose ages ranged from as young as 2 to over 100 years old.

Please join Laguna Honda in remembering Ms. Leishman with a memorial on September 21st in Moran Hall.

** Attendees are encouraged to take public transportation as parking is limited on campus.
