UCSF will enter into contract negotiations with Anshen + Allen, an award-winning international architecture firm specializing in health care, research and academic facilities, for the design of the first phase of its children's, women's and cancer hospital complex at UCSF Mission Bay.

Partnering with Anshen + Allen to provide environmental and sustainability design will be William McDonough + Partners. The team also includes Rutherford & Chekene and ARUP, both structural engineer firms.

When constructed, it will be the first hospital built from the ground up in San Francisco in several decades.

The hospital complex will allow UCSF Medical Center to expand its clinical presence in San Francisco and Northern California, and strengthen its renowned programs for children, women and cancer patients. The medical center's proximity to UCSF Mission Bay's research facilities will provide greater opportunities for collaborative research that translates the latest discoveries and innovations in medicine to the unique therapy and care needs of children, women and cancer patients.
