Cutting-Edge Cancer Care

Cancer Hospital

UCSF Bakar Cancer Hospital

UCSF Bakar Cancer Hospital represents the culmination of the science and expertise that has made our cancer program second to none.

This unique new hospital is part of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Located steps away from a world-class research center, the new hospital brings top researchers and clinicians side by side, helping foster new treatments and speeding their delivery to patients.

Our state-of-the-art facility provides our oncologists and surgeons – pioneers in nearly every form of cancer – with lasers, robotics, telemedicine systems and other advanced technology of today, with room to accommodate the innovations of the future.

Like the rest of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, the cancer hospital not only sets new standards for cutting-edge care, it does so in a setting that fully supports both patients and their families. From the private rooms with abundant natural light, sweeping views and comfortable accommodations for visiting loved ones, to the tranquil gardens and meditation spaces, our new hospital was designed to ease stress and promote healing.
