The University of California Board of Regents today approved a proposed campaign to raise at least $500 million toward the development of the first phase of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay.
UCSF is planning to build a 289-bed, integrated medical center to serve children, women and cancer patients on a 14.5-acre parcel, which is south of UCSF's existing 43-acre life sciences campus at Mission Bay. Upon completion of the first phase in 2014, the 865,000-plus-gross-square-foot hospital complex will include:
A 183-bed children's hospital and pediatric primary and specialty ambulatory care facilities
A 36-bed women's hospital and limited women's ambulatory services
A 70-bed cancer hospital
A central utility plant, underground tunnel, bridge, helipad and parking
The UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay will provide a world-class, sophisticated, efficient, flexible and family-centered healing environment. The technologically advanced facilities will provide comprehensive diagnostic, interventional and support services, and use advanced robotic and imaging technology during surgery.
