A Glimpse Inside Construction of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay

By Kate Vidinsky

Construction of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay is well underway, with the building’s exterior panels, glass, and interior studs being installed.

On a recent hard hat tour of the site, Mary Phillips, an architect and UCSF project manager for interior design, provided a special look at some of what will make the new hospital complex so special.

Highlights of the tour — including the hospital lobby, terraced rooftop gardens, and a patient room in the new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital — can be seen in this video.

Now more than 100 years old, UCSF Medical Center is expanding to Mission Bay, where an innovative 289-bed complex will feature three separate hospitals, specializing in serving children, women, and cancer patients, as well as a green energy center and the City's first helipad. With a scheduled construction completion date of August 2014, UCSF’s sophisticated, benchmark new facility will usher San Francisco into a new era of health care.
