The Road to Mission Bay
At UCSF Medical Center we believe tomorrow's medicine requires an investment in innovation today. That's why the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay was built to set new standards for health care in the 21st century.
With bright, family-friendly patient rooms, more than four acres of green space and innovative art and child life programs, this unique environment will engage entire families in the healing process. Built alongside UCSF's world-renowned research enterprise, the new complex brings clinicians and researchers together every day, helping spur the kind of collaboration for which UCSF is known: translating breakthroughs in the lab into next-generation treatments. And by cutting expected energy needs by half, conserving four million gallons of water a year and incorporating healthy building materials, we've designed a hospital that promotes health and well-being for both our patients and the environment.
From the groundbreaking ceremony in October of 2010 to the "lights on" ceremony in September of 2014, the community has joined us in celebrating milestones in the construction of their new hospital — a hospital that will be saving and improving lives for decades to come.
