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
The proposed NHPH is the subject of this project-specific EIR. The NHPH consists of the proposed New Hospital, and a number of related improvements, including a renovation of Moffitt and Long Hospitals; widening of Medical Center Way in the vicinity of the New Hospital; replacement of diesel fuel tanks and medical gas tanks; vegetation management and slope stabilization improvements; and a proposed pedestrian bridge and tunnel across Parnassus Avenue. Under the proposed NHPH, the New Hospital would consist of a 15-story plus basement building of approximately 900,000 gsf in size. The functional services of the New Hospital would include inpatient services, diagnostic and treatment services, clinical support services; logistical support, public areas, and supporting infrastructure. The New Hospital would have an inpatient bed count of 336 beds. In addition, under the NHPH, Long Hospital would provide 297 inpatient beds, and Moffitt Hospital would provide 49 inpatient beds. As a result, the total inpatient bed count at the campus site under the NHPH would be up to 682 beds; these beds would be available by December 2030. A number of supporting pedestrian and vehicular circulation, and loading improvements; utility improvements; and landscaping improvements would also be implemented for the New Hospital. As one of the related improvements, interior renovations of Moffitt and Long Hospitals would be implemented to facilitate the inpatient clinical and support program needs for the increased patient capacity at the Parnassus Heights campus site. Also, under California Senate Bill 1953, Moffitt Hospital is required to undergo a seismic retrofit to remain an acute care facility past 2030. Accordingly, under the NHPH, Moffitt Hospital would undergo a number of structural upgrades and access improvements to bring the hospital up to code.
