    Celebrating NIH Funding, UCSF’s Advocacy

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    Last Friday, Congress passed, and the President signed into law, an annual funding bill that included a $3 billion increase in NIH research funding, as well as significant increases to the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, and other important federal research programs. This remarkable growth in research funding reflects determined advocacy efforts that spanned the academic community.

    Confidence in UCSF Health

    Dear Colleagues,

    We write to share our thanks for the unwavering commitment of our faculty and staff to providing the best quality care for our patients and for the positive impact this is having on patients’ lives. While this is always true, we recognize that the last few months have been particularly challenging as we have seen a record number of inpatients.

    For the first time in our history, more than 800 inpatients are receiving care in our hospitals each day. This unprecedented patient demand is a reflection of the tremendous accomplishments of our faculty and staff in improving patients’ health, their experiences with UCSF Health, as well as, the operations of our organization.
