UCSF to start $1.6 billion hospitals project
San Francisco Chronicle, September 15, 2008
The University of California is set to move forward with a new $1.6 billion hospital complex in San Francisco that is being touted as the greenest medical center ever built in California. The university's governing Board of Regents is expected to give final approval for the six-story, 289-bed complex of hospitals. The facility will allow the UCSF Medical Center to expand and modernize its facilities for children, cancer patients and women and will enable practicing doctors and medical researchers to work more closely together in advancing cures and treatments.
