Dear Colleagues:

As we approach the holidays, I have been reflecting upon this past year and all that we have accomplished together at UCSF. There are far too many achievements to list but I would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few:

Under our clinical care mission, in March we launched our automated pharmacy in the UCSF Medical Center, using robotic technology to prepare and track medications to improve patient safety. We also achieved a major milestone with the launch of APEX, our new electronic medical records system that will significantly enhance our efficiency and ability to serve our patients. And, we celebrated an important milestone in the construction of our new hospital at Mission Bay: the “topping off” of the building this fall.
