San Francisco’s Mission Bay district became a magnificent conglomeration of colors and excitement as celebrities, civic dignitaries, and community members celebrated the upcoming opening of the new UCSF Medical Center with a lights-on festival and a hard hat walk. Adding excitement to the event were Jesse Tyler Ferguson, star of the ABC television show “Modern Family,” Olympic champion figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and San Francisco Giants home run king Barry Bonds, a longtime friend and supporter of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco.
UCSF leads the nation in health innovation and with a new medical center due to begin full function in February of 2015, the need for research supplies and equipment will reach all time highs.
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco, UCSF Bakar Cancer Hospital and UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital are expected to open on February 1, 2015.
These stats show the money involved with the new building and how much it will benefit the community in San Francisco.
- $1.520 billion project
- 289-bed children’s, women’s specialty, and cancer hospital complex
- 6-story, 878,000 gross square feet (2 city blocks) hospital complex
