UCSF Health breaks ground on $4.3B hospital

San Francisco-based UCSF Health broke ground April 27 on its new $4.3 billion UCSF Health Helen Diller Hospital in San Francisco.

The 15-story, 880,000-square-foot facility will mix new diagnostics, surgical procedures and robotics into specialty care that includes emergency medicine, cardiology, transplant and neurosurgery, according to an April 27 UCSF Health news release.

The hospital, which is set to open in 2030, is part of a transformative plan for UCSF's Parnassus Heights campus in San Francisco. The plan also includes the development of a research and academic building set to open in 2028. 

UCSF Health Helen Diller will increase the health system's capacity to 682 beds and add 22 operating rooms and 31 emergency care beds once complete. 

The health system is aiming for a 30% local hiring target for construction workers for the campus, with a goal to create 1,000 union jobs, expand current programs and develop new job training programs. 

UCSF will also support $20 million in public transit improvements near the Parnassus Heights campus as part of a collaboration with the community.
