Community Celebrates Groundbreaking of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay

October 29, 2010
Hundreds celebrated a major milestone in UCSF’s history – the groundbreaking of a new hospital complex at Mission Bay – for the century-old UCSF Medical Center.

UCSF hosted two days of events on Oct. 26 and Oct. 27 to mark the important occasion – the start of construction of a new state-of-the-art and sustainable medical center complex for women, children and cancer patients at a site near the existing biomedical research campus.

On Oct. 26, elected officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, community members and donors broke ground with shovels, enjoyed a catered lunch and reflected on the significance of the project at UCSF.

On Oct. 27, members of campus and community at large gathered for a festival featuring food, live entertainment and games.

Here are just a few of the images captured over the two-day celebration.
