FACT SHEET: UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals (Download PDF)
The affiliation of two leading Bay Area children’s hospitals promises to provide better health care value through higher quality care, lower costs and more coordinated access to services at hospital locations on both sides of the Bay, as well as medical offices throughout Northern California.
Children and their families now have a coordinated network of world-class pediatric care from the Oregon border to San Luis Obispo and as far east as Reno, NV. Our clinics offer a wide range of diagnostic testing, treatment, follow-up and rehabilitation services in many pediatric specialties.
In addition to the two main hospital sites, children and their families can access care:
- At a total of 23 UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital locations throughout Northern California.
- From more than 800 pediatricians and pediatric specialists delivering specialized care daily at UCSF Benioff San Francisco and UCSF Benioff Oakland, in addition to hundreds of community-based pediatricians affiliated with the two hospitals who provide pediatric diagnostic services and specialty care.
- From more than 65 different pediatric medical specialties and subspecialties including transplant, sickle cell, orthopedics, neurology, cardiology, and asthma and diabetes care.
Together, the two hospitals will:
- Be among the top ten largest children’s health care providers in the country when the new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay opens in February 2015.
- Be the largest network of children’s medical providers in Northern California.
- Provide health care to more children than any other children’s hospital in the Bay Area, with an estimated half million covered children – which means that families benefit from even greater pediatric expertise than ever.
- Have the facilities and geographic spread so children and their families can access the best care in the best possible setting.
- In partnership with BayChildren’s Physicians, a medical foundation jointly operated by the two hospitals, more primary care pediatricians can align with more pediatric subspecialists to provide the full span of care, as well as trauma and emergency services.
