Oakland Outpatient Center

(510) 428-3000

The Oakland Outpatient Center sits across the street from our main hospital in a six-story state-of-the-art building that opened in 2018. The two UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland facilities are connected by bridges on several levels.

Dozens of pediatric outpatient services are housed here, from the arrhythmia and audiology clinics to the Liver Center, Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes and many more.

You'll find paid parking 24/7 in the parking garage on Martin Luther King Jr. Way between 52nd and 53rd streets.

There's a maximum charge per 24-hour period. Payment for a full day gives you in-and-out privileges if you keep your receipts as you exit and re-enter the garage. You can buy discount parking coupons from the parking attendant.

The garage also has bike racks.

Metered parking is available near the hospital on 52nd Street.
