Thank you for your interest in volunteering with UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco! Volunteers come to UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco for many reasons but most come to help others and contribute to the community. In addition, volunteers can learn about the medical profession and be a part of a team dedicated to providing the highest quality health care.

February 1, 2015 will bring exciting changes to UCSF with the opening of our new Mission Bay campus, which will include:

  • UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco (183 beds): Urgent care, emergency department and pediatric primary and specialty outpatient care
  • UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women's Hospital (36 beds): Cancer care, specialty surgery, a 36-bed birth center and select women's ambulatory services
  • UCSF Bakar Cancer Hospital (70 beds): Inpatient and outpatient cancer services, surgery for broad range of cancer specialties utilizing sophisticated technology, such as robotic surgery and intra-operative radiation therapy
  • Gateway Medical Building: Outpatient services for children, women and cancer patients
