New Home for Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital
Announcing the opening of the new location of Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital (LPPH) at UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion.
We are proud to announce the opening this weekend of the new location of Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital (LPPH) at UCSF Medical Center at Mount Zion.
For more than 80 years, LPPH has been at the forefront of delivering compassionate evidence-based care for patients with behavioral health issues. The new space on the seventh floor of Mount Zion was built from the ground up with patients’ specific needs in mind and reflects the most current learnings for providing the full continuum of state-of-the-art care for patients with more severe psychiatric symptoms.
The new home for LPPH is one more step in UCSF Health’s ongoing commitment to modernizing care for patients in the Bay Area with mental health needs and transforming the field of behavioral health.
In just the past few years, we have opened the Nancy Friend Pritzker Psychiatry Building, the behavioral health building at BCH Oakland, and the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences Building. We have one of the top teams of clinicians and staff in behavioral health in the nation, and like these other facilities, the new LPPH space offers an environment and resources befitting their level of excellence.
We want to thank everyone who made this facility possible and contributed to our ability to build on LPPH’s legacy and ensure that UCSF will continue to lead in this vitally important field for decades to come.
Thank you for all that you do for our patients and families, and each other.
