UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay

An iconic landmark of health care, built from the ground up with care and compassion in mind.

UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay is our newest state-of-the-art hospital complex that has been designed to ensure that our facilities match UCSF's top-notch patient care. Our new hospitals were built with a focus on the patient’s experience every step of the way. Here at Mission Bay, you'll find the latest technology, including telemedicine, robotics and intra-operative imaging, as well as space to accommodate tomorrow's innovations. Built alongside UC San Francisco's vibrant research hub, our new hospitals bring together leading physicians and scientists to accelerate the translation of laboratory discoveries into actual treatments and cures. All of this is housed in a structure that incorporates the highest standards of patient safety, energy efficiency, seismic readiness and environmental sustainability.

New Beginnings

Super Bowl Sunday marked the start of a new era for UCSF. As the rest of the nation prepared for the big game, hundreds of staff gathered at dawn to carry out a carefully orchestrated transfer of inpatients from our Mount Zion and Parnassus hospitals to their new beds at Mission Bay. They didn't rest until the last patient had been safely tucked in.
