The Public Health Service Hospital is a defunct hospital located in the Presidio of San Francisco. The building was erected in 1932, replacing the original facility which had been established in 1875 as the U.S. Marine Hospital. Two wings were added in the 1950s, but demolished in 2009.

In 1981, the Public Health Service Hospital shut down because of budget cuts. Between 1982 and 1988, the buildings housed the San Francisco branch of the Defense Language Institute. It was closed in December 1988, and all remaining students were moved to Monterey, with plans to sell the hospital to the city of San Francisco. In the following years, the building remained empty, and became popular with squatters, graffiti artists and ghost hunters who were attracted by the allegedly haunted former morgue and operating rooms.
