UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay - A Historic Moment
Yesterday, Sunday, February 1, was a very special moment in UCSF’s history. It also was an emotional one, as hundreds of physicians, nurses and other staff helped move 131 patients - many of them extremely ill – by ambulances from our Parnassus and Mount Zion campuses to their new rooms at the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, leaving behind units and spaces where countless stories of lives saved and lives changed were forged over the past several decades.
