About UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals
UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital ranks among the nation's best children's hospitals in ten specialties and is one of the top-ranked centers in California.* Effective January 1, 2014, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital affiliated with Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland, building on the hospitals' mutual commitment to provide outstanding care to children in local communities and advance medical discovery and treatment for the world. The synergies created by coming together allow children and families to benefit from greater depth and breadth of pediatric expertise as well as the innovation possible through collaboration. With the opening of the new UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco in early 2015, UCSF has further expanded and supported the pediatric care we provide to our community.
About UCSF School of Medicine
Consistently ranked among the nation's top medical schools, the UCSF School of Medicine earns its greatest distinction from its outstanding faculty - among them are four Nobel laureates, 82 National Academy of Medicine members, 64 American Academy of Arts and Sciences members, 41 National Academy of Sciences members, and 17 Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigators.
Founded in 1864 as Toland Medical College, the School of Medicine joined the University of California in 1873, and in 1898, moved to its present Parnassus Heights campus. The first UC hospital opened here in 1907, eventually growing into Moffitt-Long Hospitals and later Benioff Children's Hospital. These facilities, together with Mount Zion Hospital, now comprise the UCSF Medical Center.
UCSF faculty have also treated patients and trained students at Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center since 1873 and at the San Francisco VA Medical Center for over 50 years. UCSF is affiliated with a number of other hospitals in the Bay Area and Fresno, including Children's Hospital Oakland.
