Yesenia and her mother Morena Fernandez enjoy a visit in their hospital room from UCSF service dog Lani.

Patients scheduled to be admitted to UCSF Medical Center or UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital are contacted in advance by an admissions counselor, who provides information and answers questions.

For patients who will be undergoing surgical procedures, an appointment is scheduled with the Prepare Program. This appointment covers hospital registration, financial counseling and health evaluation.
