The University of California, San Francisco Medical Center is a research and teaching hospital in San Francisco, California and is the medical center of the University of California, San Francisco. It is the third best hospital in the state of California and is affiliated with the UCSF School of Medicine. In 2020–21, it was ranked as the 8th-best overall hospital in the United States and the third best hospital in California (behind UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, which are both located in Los Angeles) by U.S. News & World Report.[1]

Beginning in 2001, the University expanded in the Mission Bay neighborhood and added a new medical center with three new hospitals.
