University of California San Francisco (UCSF; San Francisco) is planning a new hospital at its Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights to address increasing demand for complex adult medical care.

Recently, the current adjoined hospitals at the Parnassus Heights campus, Moffitt and Long, have had to turn away nearly 3,000 patients annually for specialty care due to a lack of bed capacity, according to a UCSF press release.

Situated between Mount Sutro hill and Golden Gate Park, the new hospital will be designed with a focus on fostering wellness and recovery through a connection to nature and the community.

The design team for the project, which is slated to be completed in 2030, includes Herzog & de Meuron (Basel, Switzerland) and HDR (San Francisco).
