EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Development and land uses of the UCSF are guided by the UCSF 2014 Long Range Development Plan: UCSF is not subject to local zoning, but City of San Francisco zoning is identified for City of San Francisco Zoning Districts: P (Public) Zoning District, 65-D and 220-F, and OS Height and Bulk District
Document Description
UCSF is proposing to construct a new hospital and related improvements at the east end of UCSF’s Parnassus Heights campus core, collectively known as the New Hospital at Parnassus Heights project (NHPH). The NHPH would increase inpatient beds at Parnassus Heights; accommodate modern technologies; address seismic safety requirements and meet other regulatory requirements and industry standards for contemporary hospitals; and enhance functionality and efficiency at the campus site. Construction of the NHPH would begin in 2023 with the proposed New Hospital and majority of related improvements completed and operational by the end of 2030, and completion of the remaining related improvements by 2034. As proposed, the New Hospital would be approximately 900,000 gross square feet, and consist of 15 stories plus rooftop mechanical equipment and a full basement. The New Hospital would require certain supporting circulation, loading, utility and landscaping improvements. The NHPH would also include renovation of Moffitt and Long Hospitals, widening Medical Center Way adjacent to the New Hospital for fire safety purposes; replacement of diesel fuel tanks and medical gas tanks; vegetation management and slope stabilization improvements; and a pedestrian bridge and tunnel across Parnassus Avenue. Under the proposed NHPH, the New Hospital would provide 336 inpatient beds, Long Hospital would provide 297 inpatient beds, and Moffitt Hospital would provide 49 inpatient beds. The total inpatient bed count at the campus site under the NHPH would be up to 682 beds. A minor amendment to the 2014 LRDP would be required to adjust the Reserve boundary and maintain the Reserve at a minimum of 61 acres.
