Regional health system UCSF Health, part of the University of California San Francisco, launched construction on the $4.3 billion UCSF Health Helen Diller Hospital at the Parnassus Heights campus in San Francisco.

The project team for the 880,000-square-foot hospital includes lead architect Herzog & de Meuron  (Basel, Switzerland) and architect-of-record HDR (Omaha, Neb.).

Expected to open in 2030, the 15-story hospital will connect with a new research and academic building set to debut in 2028, according to a news release. Both projects are part of a 30-year master plan to transform UCSF’s flagship Parnassus Heights campus.

The project will house 21 operating rooms and 200 patient beds, including 31 for emergency care. Services and specialty care will include diagnostics, robotics, surgical procedures, neurosurgery, cardiology, transplant, and emergency medicine.
