UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center in San Francisco Envisioned as ‘The Healing Habitat’

The University of California San Francisco has selected HDR and Herzog & de Meuron to design the new hospital of the historic and internationally renowned UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights, a home to both inpatient and outpatient services.The hospital is part of UCSF’s academic medical center, which also includes a top-ranked research enterprise and graduate schools in the health sciences.

The design team is uniquely positioned to realize UCSF’s vision for the hospital for the future as “The Healing Habitat,” a holistic healthcare environment that fosters wellness and recovery by combining efficient facilities with human experiences, connected to nature and the community.

Located prominently between Mount Sutro and Golden Gate Park, the new hospital at UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center will play an important role in the city and surrounding community. HDR, as architect of record, and Herzog & de Meuron, as lead designer, will work with UCSF to create a gateway between nature and the urban context around it – a facility that encourages people to rethink the role of the hospital within their daily lives and the community.
