With 40 ambulances, approximately 300 UC San Francisco staff and faculty, as well as 100 emergency medical services personnel, UCSF Medical Center on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015 safely transported 131 patients to the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay from its Parnassus and Mount Zion campuses.
The move day started at 7 a.m. on the UCSF Parnassus campus; later in the day patients also were transported from the UCSF Mount Zion campus. The last patient to be moved arrived at UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay at 3:33 p.m.
The new medical center also greeted the first baby born at the new hospitals, a healthy boy who entered the world at a little more than seven pounds.
The opening of the new hospitals was the culmination of more than 10 years of planning and construction of the complex, which includes UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco, UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital, UCSF Bakar Cancer Hospital and the UCSF Ron Conway Family Gateway Medical Building.
