The future UC San Francisco women’s hospital will be named in honor of a health care philanthropist who, along with her husband, donated $50 million to the project, university officials said.
UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann announced Wednesday that the hospital scheduled to open in about one year in the Mission Bay area of The City will be called the UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital. Moore is the wife of Intel Corp. co-founder Gordon Moore.
In addition to their $50 million women’s hospital contribution, the couple has made several other multimillion-dollar gifts to support research and nursing education at UCSF, officials at the university said.
Along with serving pregnant women in a 36-bed birth center and nine deluxe delivery rooms, the new hospital is expected to provide treatment for gynecological disorders and breast cancer.
