The UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay is an OSHPD, ground-up, integrated hospital complex in the making. It will include:

  • The 183-bed UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital at Mission Bay with an urgent care/emergency department, pediatric primary care, and specialty outpatient care
  • The UCSF Women's Specialty Hospital with 36 beds, cancer care, specialty surgery, and birth center

  • A 207,400-sq.-ft. outpatient building
  • 36,000-sq.-ft. energy center, helipad, parking and support services

DPR is working with UCSF, Anshen + Allen - part of Stantec Architecture, Cambridge CM, and 17 subcontractors at the Integrated Center for Design and Construction (ICDC) to deliver the ground-up, 878,000-sq.-ft. hospital complex. This project aims at LEED Gold certification and will feature 16 individual gardens, creating a total green space totaling 4.3 acres. Over an acre of these will be rooftop gardens which will help to reduce storm water runoff. The complex will deliver 100 percent outdoor air, rather than re-circulated, to every space.
