Our Affiliates

We collaborate with the best pediatric providers throughout Northern California to extend our mission – Caring, Healing, Teaching and Discovering – beyond our walls and into the communities of the children and families we serve.

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals doctors work directly with our affiliate providers, sharing best practices and the latest innovations in treatment and technology. Like us, these experienced independent providers are committed to improving the quality of care for all young Californians and are deeply invested in their communities. We help them identify and develop services that can be delivered locally, whether by building a specialty care nursery or establishing a pediatric intensive care unit.

The practical and personal collaboration between UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals and our affiliates is a two-way street, bringing together expertise and resources from both sides. What does this mean for young patients? They are more likely to get excellent medical care for a serious condition closer to home.

If your child ever needs a referral to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospitals for treatment, our affiliations can smooth the way at a stressful time. We coordinate closely with your child's pediatrician to make sure they receive the best care at home and at our hospitals.
