Children are often cared for in hospitals designed for adults, with equipment out of scale for small bodies. And with demand for specialized care often coming from across the region and around the globe, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital can be overcrowded. Your gift will change all that, and build on natural synergies in the care of women, cancer patients, and children.
Today, it can take 15 years to test one discovery that might yield one new drug. Through The Campaign for UCSF Medical Center, you can help build an environment that, by integrating research and care, accelerates the translation process. Already, UCSF scientists are using a new research model to test six breast cancer therapies simultaneously. This is the shape of research to come – fast, efficient, full of possibilities.
What happens when three leading enterprises of research and care share a single campus equipped for innovation? Brilliant cross-pollination, as specialists collaborate to advance the breakthrough concept of personalized medicine – treatments biologically tailored to each patient. New drugs, gene-based therapies, diagnostic techniques that identify specific disease biomarkers – innovations like these can save lives. And your investment will make them possible.
By many measures, an investment in The Campaign for UCSF Medical Center will deliver exceptional returns. Mission Bay hospitals will enhance and save lives, and facilitate the translation of laboratory discoveries into care innovations. They will provide a new model of sustainability for 21st-century hospitals. And they will raise the profile of a Bay Area institution that already ranks among the best in the world.
Your gift to The Campaign for UCSF Medical Center supports Bay Area innovation and will deliver the very best health care possible, starting here in San Francisco. But your impact will be anything but local. The return on your investment will ripple far beyond three hospitals and one city, and will be measured in the lives of people all over the world.
