Document Description
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital (BCH) Oakland is a safety net hospital that serves as one of the very few acute care pediatric hospitals providing Level 1 trauma services. UCSF is proposing to construct a new hospital building and associated improvements at the BCH Oakland campus site, collectively known as the New Hospital Building (NHB) Project. The NHB Project would address seismic safety requirements, other regulatory requirements, and industry standards for contemporary hospitals; increase inpatient beds; accommodate modern technologies; and enhance functionality and efficiency at the campus site. Construction of the NHB Project would begin in Summer 2024 and be completed by early 2031, with the exception of renovations to existing building which would extend into early 2033. The NHB Project would include a 332,523 gross square feet (gsf) new hospital building, consisting of 8 stories with rooftop helistop, and a full basement; a 4-story 270-space parking structure; a one-story, 6,100 gsf site support building; renovation and/or structural retrofitting of existing buildings within the Project site; and a variety of transportation, infrastructure, and landscape improvements. The NHB Project would also involve demolition or relocation of approximately 110,700 gsf of existing buildings, and renovation of approximately 30,000 gsf of existing building space. Under the NHB Project, the new hospital building would house 128 inpatient beds, of which 72 beds would be relocated from the existing facilities on the Project site, and 82 beds would remain in the existing facilities, for a total of 210 inpatient beds at the Project site (a net increase of 33 inpatient beds over existing conditions). A Project variant is analyzed in this EIR at an equal level of detail as the proposed Project involving a design change in which case the proposed helistop structure would be constructed on top of the new parking structure instead of atop the new hospital building. UCSF is one of 10 campuses in the University of California system. Each UC campus is required periodically to prepare a Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) to guide campus growth and future physical development. In 2014, the UC Regents adopted the UCSF 2014 LRDP, which serves as a comprehensive physical land use plan and policy document to guide the physical development of UCSF at all its campus sites, accommodating future increases in enrollment and projected clinical, educational and research demand. UCSF proposes to amend the 2014 LRDP to include the BCH Oakland facilities in the UCSF 2014 LRDP space program. This would include the main UCSF BCH Oakland campus site, and smaller BCH Oakland-owned off-site locations.
