Project Spotlight
Mount Zion OR Expansion

As part of the long-range planning effort for UCSF's inpatient and outpatient medical facilities, UCSF’s leadership team has determined that the Mt. Zion site will be used in various combinations of research, ambulatory care, inpatient and outpatient surgical services.


The inadequate number of OR rooms at Mt. Zion are currently limiting the ability of the Medical Center to perform more complex procedures and thus fill more beds.


Today's robotic and complex surgical procedures require larger surgical rooms and tighter climate controls. This project will create two new surgical suites one of which will support robotic surgical procedures and further important research.

The extensive construction work will be phased over 14 months and involves infrastructure improvements on the roof as well as four floors and the basement


When completed, OR #11 will be the largest OR suite at Mt. Zion. The OR staff will have the capability to record or broadcast procedures to anywhere in the world.


In addition, the new dedicated HVAC systems and electronic controls will be more efficient in addition to giving the OR staff greater control over the surgical environment. In addition, the seismic upgrades in the remodeled suites will ensure compliance with all current building code requirements.


The project budget for construction and equipment totals over $16 million.


While our Mission Bay hospital expansion is considered a “big iron” project, the Mount Zion and Parnassus campuses smaller iron projects remain an important key for the overall success of the UCSF goals for long-term clinical development, new revenue-generating programs and care of our patients.
