UCSF Health Opens New Clinics on Peninsula

UCSF Health has opened two new patient care centers in San Mateo and one in Redwood City this month to enable patients to receive UCSF primary, specialty and cancer care in convenient locations close to home.

The UCSF San Mateo Primary and Specialty Care Clinic, at 1100 Park Place, Suite 100, brings a wide range of primary care and top-ranked specialty care services for adults and children, as well as imaging. Services will include family medicine, internal medicine, radiology and 13 medical specialties, such as cardiology, orthopedics and prenatal diagnostics.

The clinic, which opened Jan. 22, 2020, makes it easy for patients to access UCSF Health adult primary and specialty care on the Peninsula. It also will provide family medicine, as well as a child and adolescent gender center and specialty programs in cardiology, neurology, pulmonology and orthopedics, among others. The clinic is currently taking appointments at 415-502-8950 and online at

“This is very exciting to be opening our first primary and specialty clinic in San Mateo,” said Susan Smith, MD, a family medicine physician and senior vice president of UCSF Health. “These clinics will provide a convenient option for our patients who live or work on the Peninsula and are looking for a closer option for UCSF care. This will enable patients to benefit from the convenience of a local clinic, with the care of world-class physicians.”

Oncologists from California Cancer Care, the largest independent oncology group in San Mateo County, have also joined the UCSF faculty effective Jan. 13, 2020, enabling UCSF Health to bring specialty cancer care closer to home for patients through offices in both San Mateo and Redwood City.

The new UCSF Cancer Center San Mateo already has a well-earned reputation for excellence. Its services include diagnosis, surgical biopsies, infusion and radiation therapy, with specialists in lung, breast, gastrointestinal and genitourinary cancers, as well as blood disorders and lymphoma. Patients will now have the opportunity to participate in UCSF clinical trials, as well, through the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. The practice’s five oncologists, as well as clinical and administrative staff, have become UCSF employees.
