Dear UCSF Community,

Today UCSF finalized agreements with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and the Golden State Warriors that would protect patient safety at the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay should the Warriors proposed sports and entertainment complex be approved and built on a site adjacent to our hospitals. As a result, the city and the Warriors are committed to actively mitigating traffic levels through a series of measures that support timely access to our hospitals by patients, visitors, and healthcare workers.

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

Please join me at my State of the University Address on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, during which I will highlight overarching priorities and plans for UCSF as well as report on our progress and achievements.

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

As you may have heard, UCSF has been in negotiations regarding the proposed Warriors arena and events center on 11 acres located at the intersection of 16th and Third Streets, diagonally across the street from the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. Our focus has been on ensuring that the appropriate mitigations are in place to effectively manage the projected increase in traffic to facilitate access to the hospitals for our patients, their families, and our health care workers.

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

I am writing to inform you that one of UCSF’s biggest champions, Chancellor Emeritus Julius “Julie” R. Krevans, MD, died peacefully in Maine on July 12. A distinguished physician, educator, and transformative leader, Dr. Krevans led UCSF into greatness while serving as dean of the School of Medicine from 1971 to 1982 and as chancellor from 1982 to 1993.

Dear Colleagues, We are delighted to share the news that UCSF Medical Center is one of the nation’s premier hospitals for the 14th consecutive year, ranking as the eighth best hospital in the country in the 2015-2016 America’s Best Hospitals survey, which was published by U.S. News & World Report today.

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

Recent cyber attacks in the news are striking closer to home. These incidents can be detrimental on both an institutional and individual level. They require continued diligence by everyone within the university. I need each of you to take immediate action to assist in further securing the IT assets and data that you use and create at UCSF.

The following steps are mandatory and require your immediate action:

The #WhiteCoats4BlackLives movement, started by our students last December, catalyzed an important and ongoing discussion about violence, social injustice, and inequities that are prevalent in our society and focused us on the work we must do within on our own campus to become a truly inclusive community.

Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

This summer marks the launch of an important program here at UCSF in our effort to translate science into better health for our own community.
