Update: Warriors in San Francisco

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.

UCSF Announces “Win-Win” Plan re: Golden State Warriors in San Francisco

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.

Chancellor Emeritus Julius R. Krevans

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.
