Leading Care for Kids

Children's Hospital

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco is home to advanced technology and world-class physicians, with more than 150 experts in 50 different specialties. Now San Francisco's only children's hospital has a spectacular new home at Mission Bay, designed from the ground up with kids in mind.

Light-filled private rooms comfortably accommodate parents and loved ones. The in-room multimedia wall keeps patients entertained and connected to friends and classrooms back home. New, state-of-the-art playrooms, lounges and activity rooms, plus more than four acres of green space, give kids the chance to be kids — even in the hospital. These are just a few of the ways we tend to the special needs of our young patients and their families.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco will stand as an iconic landmark of health care, built from the ground up with care and compassion in mind. Through revolutionary medical research and specialized patient care designed just for kids, UCSF is bringing the future of children’s health to Mission Bay.
