Programs and Projects

Mission Bay Hospitals

The new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay is a state-of-the-art complex with three new integrated hospitals — one for cancer patients, another for children and a third for women.

The hospital is located just south of UCSF's biomedical campus at Mission Bay, strengthening collaboration between health researchers and health care providers and helping advance the translation of research findings into therapies and cures — all in a world-class, family-centered healing environment.
