UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital is recognized throughout the world as a leader in health care, known for innovation, technology and compassionate care. For more than a century, we have offered the highest quality medical treatment.
Today, we are one of the top children's hospitals in the nation, according to a ranking by U.S. News & World Report. Our expertise covers virtually all pediatric conditions, including cancer, heart disease, neurological disorders, organ transplants and orthopedics as well as the care of critically ill newborns.
Our 180-bed UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital is a “hospital within a hospital” with more than 150 specialists in more than 40 areas of medicine. We have programs designed specifically for young patients, such as a 50-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery, recreational therapy for recovering kids and 60 outreach clinics throughout Northern California. Our doctors were the first in the world to successfully perform surgery on a baby still in the womb and have also developed many other life-saving treatments.
FUTURE: UCSF plans to build a 289-bed, integrated hospital complex to serve children, women and cancer patients adjacent to our 57-acre biomedical campus at Mission Bay. Upon completion of the first phase in 2014, the 878,000-gross-square-foot hospital complex will include a brand-new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.
