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.
