Partnering to Bring Care Closer to You
At UCSF Health, we collaborate with the best providers throughout Northern California to extend our mission – Caring, Healing, Teaching and Discovering – beyond our walls and into the communities of the patients and families we serve.
UCSF doctors work directly with our affiliate providers, sharing best practices and the latest innovations in treatment and technology. Like UCSF, these experienced independent providers are committed to improving the quality of care for all Californians and are deeply invested in their community. We help them identify and develop services that can be delivered locally, whether by building a cancer center or establishing a pediatric ICU.
The collaboration between UCSF and our affiliates is a two-way street, bringing together expertise and resources from both sides. What does this mean for you? If you're a patient, you're more likely to get excellent medical care for a serious condition without traveling great distances.
If you need a referral to UCSF for treatment, our affiliations can smooth the way at a stressful time. We coordinate closely with your physician to make sure you receive the best care at home and at UCSF.
