UCSF has received a $500 million commitment from the Helen Diller Foundation to support the planning, design and construction of a new, world-class hospital at the University’s historic Parnassus Heights campus, ensuring that UCSF can continue to provide premier care to patients in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond in the 21st century.
UCSF has released its Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve Vegetation Management Plan, which assesses the potential environmental impacts of the University’s plan to improve the health and sustainability of the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve.
It’s going to be a busy couple of years of construction on and around the greater Mission Bay area, as work commences on six different UCSF building projects adding more than 1 million square feet of new space to the University.
The UC Board of Regents have approved plans for three new UCSF building projects, including a new neuroscience building on the Mission Bay campus as well as a new psychiatry building and student housing in the nearby Dogpatch neighborhood.
The UC Board of Regents will consider approving UC San Francisco’s new Child, Teen and Family Center at its regular meeting Thursday.
The center will provide a child-, family- and adult-friendly environment in which UCSF can provide mental health services. The new building also will house the UCSF Department of Psychiatry.
