UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland Campus Modernization Plan

The affiliation between UCSF and Children's Hospital Oakland brings together two great health care institutions to strengthen and transform the care we provide to children in Oakland and beyond. In 2015, we began implementing our plans to modernize the UCSF Benioff Children's hospital. This ambitious effort enables us to serve our patients and support our care teams with new and renovated facilities that match the world-class care we provide.

Work is being carried out in two phases as part of our commitment to strengthen care services and broaden access for our local communities.

  • Phase 1: Refurbish and renovate: This first phase of construction activity is nearing completion.
  • Phase 2: Ongoing investment in BCH Oakland: UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital will invest a further $1 billion to modernize inpatient facilities.

Why reimagine facilities for the BCH Oakland Campus?

Enhance care

The comfort and care of our patients remains a top priority. The modernized hospital will accommodate new technologies, provide space for private rooms and more services, including inpatient mental health care, improving the overall experience of our patients and families.

Modernize facilities

Our care teams are the best and brightest in the industry. By updating the campus, we ensure our clinical teams have the best facilities and tools to continue delivering world-class care and the hospital continues to attract top-flight staff.

Invest in Oakland

We are committed to Oakland and the East Bay. The new campus underlines our pledge to strengthen care services for Oakland and the East Bay community. In addition, the modernization plan will create good-paying jobs to strengthen the local economy. Planning for Phase 2 is being done in collaboration with our neighbors and key stakeholders, to ensure the project proceeds with their input.

Access for all

UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland is committed to delivering high-quality care to all children, regardless of ability to pay. In 2014, the affiliation between Children's Hospital Oakland and UCSF allowed us to increase our investment in Oakland. Today, backed by the financial stability of the affiliation, we are working to strengthen UCSF BCH Oakland's care programs and services.
