UCSF celebrating 150 years in health and science


Campus honors past, focused on future.

Hugh Toland joined a California-bound wagon train in 1852 with visions of striking it rich in the Gold Rush.

It only took a few months before the South Carolina surgeon abandoned prospecting, seeing a better opportunity in providing health care to a raucous and booming San Francisco. By 1864, Toland Medical College was born, and less than a decade later, it became the “medical department” of a fledgling University of California.

Though Toland might not have found the exact fortune he was seeking out West, he left a legacy that has enriched future generations in ways far greater than he could have imagined.

Today UC San Francisco is one of the top health sciences universities, encompasses more than 20 locations throughout San Francisco and is leading a charge to advance health worldwide. From its humble beginnings in the Wild West to this year’s 150th anniversary celebration, UCSF has been a testament to how the best research, the best education and the best patient care can converge to create life-changing breakthroughs.

UCSF’s sesquicentennial, which officially launches on Founders Day on April 10 and continues through May 2015, will be a yearlong celebration filled with special events on campus and in the community.

While anniversaries are a time to look back at accomplishments, the goal of this celebration also will be to recognize that UCSF has always been focused on the future, says Mary Anne Koda-Kimble, Pharm.D., chair of the 150th Celebration Committee and dean emeritus of the UCSF School of Pharmacy.

“The culture of the place is about excellence, moving forward and seeking new frontiers,” she says.

Benioffs donate another $100M to UCSF children’s hospitals


Donation to strengthen children’s health care across San Francisco Bay Area.

UC San Francisco announced today a second gift of $100 million from Lynne and Marc Benioff to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and also its affiliate, Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland.

The gift will be used to strengthen the existing talent and programs in basic and clinical research and patient care at the two premier institutions, as well as attract new expertise, in order to accelerate the development of innovative solutions for children’s health on both sides of the San Francisco Bay, as well as nationally and globally.

“We are thrilled to advance our vision of improving health of the children in Oakland and San Francisco, and to fuel positive changes in the care of our youngest patients today and for future generations,” said Sam Hawgood, M.B.B.S., interim chancellor of UCSF, dean of the UCSF School of Medicine and a neonatologist. “This gift significantly strengthens the abilities of both institutions to attract and retain top talent in pediatric health, as well as to support the next evolution of research and clinical programs.”

In recognition of the two hospitals’ affiliation on Jan. 1, 2014, Children’s Hospital Oakland will be named UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital will be named UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco. Together, the hospitals will be named UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals.

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals are two leading Bay Area children’s hospitals with longstanding commitments to public service. Both institutions, as well as UCSF Medical Center, care for all children who seek help, regardless of their family’s ability to pay, and provide millions of dollars of uncompensated care and community services for low-income, homeless and underinsured patients. From free children’s health screenings to staffing clinics, the hospitals help meet the needs of Northern California’s most vulnerable populations.

“The generosity and commitment of Marc and Lynne Benioff will strengthen Oakland’s thriving medical research community and ensure doctors on both sides of the bay have world-class facilities to care for children, regardless of income,” said California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr.

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco will be part of a 289-bed integrated hospital complex for children, women and cancer patients that will open Feb. 1, 2015, at UCSF Mission Bay.

Construction of the new children’s hospital is on schedule and below budget. The 183-bed hospital increases the capacity of the current UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco – located on the UCSF Parnassus campus – by 20 beds, and will feature a rooftop helipad to bring critically ill newborns, children and pregnant women to UCSF from community hospitals; a dedicated pediatric emergency room designed just for children; as well as private and semi-private rooms in the new intensive care nursery.

“We are building a world-class pediatric facility that puts the needs of our patients and their families at the forefront,” said Mark Laret, CEO of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco. “This donation ensures we can continue to advance the most innovative clinical care within the new hospital, as well as outside its walls by partnering with colleagues at our research campus and with Children’s Oakland physicians and staff.”

“This extraordinary gift will have a significant impact on the care we provide children as it will be used to strengthen facilities at Children’s Oakland as well as our education, research and community benefit missions,” said Bert Lubin, M.D., CEO of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and a pediatrician.

The two hospitals have worked together for decades and are highly regarded nationally as well as internationally, each having made significant advancements in developing new treatments and achieving better health outcomes for children.

“Private support is essential for UC to deliver the highest quality care, training and research innovations needed to advance children’s health,” said Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California. “I thank the Benioffs for their generous support of UCSF and their commitment to our shared mission of building healthy communities.”

UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco are involved in more than 400 research protocols led by more than 500 investigators researching cures for hundreds of pediatric and adult diseases. The children’s hospital is one of the leading children’s hospitals in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.

“We have been deeply inspired by the incredible kids, doctors, researchers, and administrators at both UCSF and Children’s Hospital Oakland,” said Lynne and Marc Benioff. “We feel extremely fortunate to have this opportunity to support the best children’s hospitals in the world.”

UC statement on contract ratification by AFSCME


Patient care technical employees vote to ratify contract with UC.

The University of California was informed today (March 28) that members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) voted to ratify a contract agreement with UC. In response to the ratification, Dwaine Duckett, UC’s vice president for human resources, released the following statement:

We are pleased that our dedicated patient care technical employees voted to ratify a contract agreement with the University of California. This follows two years of difficult negotiations focused on the complex issue of pension reform. The negotiations concluded with both sides responding to the other’s key concerns and ultimately compromising.

We are disappointed that this process took as long as it did and became so contentious. The university’s agreement with AFSCME 3299 is very similar to ones UC reached months ago with CNA, a union representing nurses, and UPTE, which represents other hospital workers. These contracts were achieved in less time and with significantly less stress and uncertainty for workers at our hospitals.

From the beginning, the primary issue in our negotiations with AFSCME was pension reform, with the union asserting that no change was needed and choosing to strike over the issue. We’ve successfully bargained through this key issue for the university, and have put the pension plan on a fiscally sound path by addressing this head-on.

Regarding annual wage increases, the union’s initial demands were eventually adjusted from more than 10 percent a year over 3 years to approximately 6 percent a year over 4 years, which includes across-the-board raises and experience-based step increases that we believe are fair and appropriate for these skilled health-care jobs.

Fortunately, settling this agreement spared AFSCME patient care technical workers who wanted to come to work from having to cross a picket line. It also ensured that patients who have come to rely on our top-rated medical facilities for care could continue to receive that care without disruption. We value the work of our respiratory therapists, surgical perfusionists and radiation technicians (who provide cancer treatment), along with many other critical AFSCME patient care employees, and are pleased they are staying on the job. The prospect of yet another strike — even though it was averted at the 11th hour — was a disservice to our patients, employees and the public at large.

With this agreement settled, the university can move forward with our employees and continue to meet UC’s mission of teaching, research and public service at our campuses, medical centers and national labs.

UC medical centers team up to reduce costs


Systemwide effort expected to save in range of $100M to $150M a year.

The University of California announced today (March 20) that its five medical centers will collaborate as a system to save in the range of $100 million to $150 million a year.

The “Leveraging Scale for Value” project, presented to UC Regents during their meeting at UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center, initially will focus on three areas: supply chain, revenue cycle and clinical laboratories. The effort, developed in consultation with UC leadership, is aligned with UC President Janet Napolitano’s push to identify cost savings and operational efficiencies.

“We are leveraging the UC system’s collective strength to become more efficient,” said Dr. John Stobo, UC senior vice president for health sciences and services. “By collaborating more, we can ensure the financial well-being of our clinical enterprise, allowing us to continue improving the health of Californians.”

UC’s $7.5 billion clinical enterprise, with essentially no support from state general funds, provides approximately $500 million in support of UC’s medical and other health professional schools. But to continue such educational support, fulfill its public service mission and maintain quality in a competitive health care market, UC’s clinical enterprise must lower its costs.

Without changes, UC medical center expenses are projected to exceed revenues in 2017. Challenges include declining reimbursements for clinical services from commercial insurers and government sources such as Medicare and Medi-Cal. By coordinating more as a system, UC Health can take advantage of its medical centers’ size to operate more efficiently and reduce expenses, as other successful health systems have done.

UC has developed the Leveraging Scale for Value project over the past year, considering 10 areas for achieving operating efficiencies and quality improvement, and selecting three to focus on first.

The decision to embark on the project came after a series of meetings that included selected regents, President Napolitano, chancellors, CEOs of the five UC medical centers, deans of the UC schools of medicine, medical center CFOs and COOs, clinical laboratory directors, and CEOs of health systems at the University of Michigan, Vanderbilt University and BJC HealthCare in St. Louis.

The university also engaged with other successful health systems such as the University of Pittsburgh, Johns Hopkins and University HealthSystem Consortium. These discussions confirmed the financial challenges facing UC Health’s clinical enterprise, as well as UC Health’s need to leverage its impact as a large system to achieve significant cost reductions.

The medical centers at UC Davis, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego and UC San Francisco already work together on systemwide contracts with commercial insurers and on some group purchasing. The Leveraging Scale for Value project will increase supply-chain coordination, identifying five areas for systemwide procurement.

By improving revenue cycle management, such as billing and collection processes, UC medical centers are expected to create operational savings and potentially improve revenue. And by sending more lab tests to UC medical centers instead of external labs, the university is expected to save additional money.

A shared services management council made up of the medical center CEOs, medical school deans, two chancellors, three external expert advisers and Stobo is looking at how to manage the project in an effective, efficient and accountable manner.

“The ‘scale’ project does not replace what each medical center must do on its own to contain costs,” Stobo said. “The systemwide efforts focus on what individual medical centers are unable to do on their own. Both local and systemwide efforts are needed to get us where we need to be.”

Sam Hawgood takes helm at UCSF


Renowned physician-scientist becomes interim leader of health-focused university.

Sam Hawgood, UC San Francisco

Renowned pediatrician and medical school Dean Sam Hawgood, M.B.B.S., became interim chancellor today (April 1) of UC San Francisco, the nation’s leading public university exclusively dedicated to health.

The appointment, which the University of California Board of Regents approved Jan. 23, places Hawgood at the helm of the $4 billion university during the national search for its 10th chancellor. He assumes the role from Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, M.D., M.P.H., who will become chief executive officer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on May 1.

Hawgood has been dean of the UCSF School of Medicine and vice chancellor for medical affairs at UCSF since September 2009, after serving as interim dean since December 2007. The school has excelled under his leadership. It currently is ranked first among all schools nationwide in funding from the National Institutes of Health, indicating the excellence of its research enterprise. It also ranks fourth nationwide in both research and primary care education, according to the recent survey conducted by U.S. News & World Report.

As dean, Hawgood has been a core member of the Chancellor’s Executive Council, playing an integral role in the university’s leadership and guidance during a time of profound growth.

“Sam is a highly respected physician, scientist and leader, with a collaborative and inclusive style that will serve the campus well through this transition,” said UC President Janet Napolitano. “I have full confidence that his leadership will enable UCSF to maintain its renowned excellence in research, education and clinical care into the foreseeable future.”

Napolitano appointed an advisory committee of university faculty, staff, students, alumni and foundation representatives in January to support the national search, which Napolitano will oversee.

UC Davis Medical Center, Dameron Hospital won’t pursue joint venture


Decision based on several factors, including changing community needs.

UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento and Dameron Hospital Association in Stockton are not pursuing a joint venture.

For the last two years, UC Davis and Dameron Hospital have been evaluating different legal structures for partnership that would benefit both organizations, as well as the Stockton community. The decision not to pursue a joint venture structure and to reassess those plans was based on several factors, including changing community needs and the parties’ respective missions and strategic priorities. Although a formal joint venture will not be implemented in this circumstance, the organizations may continue to seek collaborations that better support their respective missions and communities.

“Getting to know Dameron and the health care dynamics of the Stockton community has been a valuable experience for us,” said Ann Madden Rice, chief executive officer of UC Davis Medical Center. “While this joint venture will not go forward, we will work along with Dameron to seek ways to improve the quality of health care for the Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.”

Lorraine P. Auerbach, president and CEO of Dameron Hospital, said, “We appreciate the opportunity to continue to work with UC Davis Medical Center to bring university-level services to our community.” Auerbach continued, “Dameron Hospital is in a far better position than it was two years ago. Therefore, it is now appropriate that instead of restructuring to a joint venture, we focus on developing new ways to work with UC Davis Medical Center that bring more value and sophisticated services to our local community.”

New dean is biological sciences booster


Frank LaFerla, renowned for his Alzheimer’s work, hopes to raise UC Irvine school’s profile.

Frank LaFerla, UC Irvine

For a scientist widely considered an international leader in Alzheimer’s disease research, Frank LaFerla joined the UC Irvine faculty in 1995, interestingly enough, without ever having taken a single neuroscience class.

LaFerla had received a doctorate in virology and was studying AIDS-related dementia when he sat in on his first neurobiology course, one taught by James McGaugh and Norman Weinberger, two of the nation’s top learning and memory researchers. The lessons obviously made a great impression on the young scientist.

Since that time, LaFerla has made key research breakthroughs that show promise for treating Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. He has served in numerous leadership roles, including as chair of the Department of Neurobiology & Memory and director of the campus’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND), a research center internationally acclaimed for its work on disorders of the brain, particularly those that are age-related.

Last December, LaFerla became the Hana & Francisco J. Ayala Dean of the newly renamed Francisco J. Ayala School of Biological Sciences, heading the third-largest school on campus, with nearly 4,000 students majoring in one of its four undergraduate degree programs.

“Frank brings enormous enthusiasm and optimism to everything he does,” says McGaugh, a research professor of neurobiology & behavior and former biological sciences dean. “He wants to take actions that emphasize the character and the contributions of the school to the campus and to the public. It’s hard to imagine a more qualified person for the position.”

And with UC Irvine approaching its golden anniversary, LaFerla says, he aims to “take the school to the next level.”

He assumes the helm at a time when the biological sciences are critical to addressing such global concerns as sustainable food production, ecosystem restoration, optimized biofuel manufacturing and improved human health. And he wants to ensure that UC Irvine plays a part.

“Our brand is ‘Understanding Life: Transforming Our World,’” LaFerla says. “We will be excellent ambassadors of science who are trying to solve very important issues.”

UC statement on tentative agreement with AFSCME


Deal averts strike March 24-29 at UC medical centers.

Dwaine Duckett, UC vice president for human resources, issued the following statement today (March 23) regarding contract negotiations with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME):

The University of California reached a tentative agreement this morning with AFSCME on a four-year contract for nearly 13,000 patient care technical employees who work at UC medical and student health centers.

As a result, there will be no strike at our medical centers March 24-29 and AFSCME will present the tentative agreement to its membership for a vote.

There was true compromise by both sides to reach this agreement. This ends nearly two years of very challenging negotiations and serves as a foundation for UC and AFSCME to build on going forward. The agreement also allows our medical centers and student health centers to continue to deliver the quality care our patients and students depend on without any interruptions.

Highlights of the four-year tentative agreement, which is subject to ratification by AFSCME members, include:

  • Wages: across-the-board and step increases totaling 24.5 percent, similar to what UC nurses agreed to, along with a ratification bonus
  • Health benefits: rate freezes for lower-salaried employees
  • Retirement benefits: The same pension formula as AFSCME service works and UC nurses
  • Job security: Revised language on layoffs and contracting out to protect employee jobs.

UCSF presents plans for Mission Bay land purchase


UCSF in advanced talks with Salesforce.com to acquire Mission Bay parcel.

UC San Francisco presented preliminary plans for the acquisition and development of a new site at Mission Bay to community members on March 13.

In a presentation to the Mission Bay Citizens Advisory Committee, UCSF said it is in advanced discussions with Salesforce.com to acquire a parcel of land known as Blocks 33 and 34, directly across Third Street from the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay.

While UCSF is still formulating initial plans for the site, the university would expect to build it out as designated in the Mission Bay South Redevelopment Plan and would follow the plan guidelines for height, bulk, setbacks, streetscape landscaping and other design matters.

The redevelopment plan allows for development of up to 500,000 gross square feet of office and/or biotech space, and up to 500 parking spaces. Buildings would be permitted up to 90 feet tall, with a tower up to 160 feet tall in a limited area at the north end of the site. UCSF will conduct a community process to solicit feedback on height, bulk and building design from neighbors.

The plans are a central element of UCSF’s efforts to create a sustainable financial future by consolidating its leased and remote sites. This type of consolidation would help reduce the long-term operating and occupancy costs associated with the multiple sites that house UCSF faculty and staff across the city, while better positioning the university for the future through better efficiency, coordination and collaboration across its campus sites.

This is also an opportunity to continue building the future of Mission Bay as a neighborhood and enhance the city’s ability to address its priorities. As part of the transaction, UCSF will provide an upfront payment of $10.2 million to the city for the sole purpose of developing affordable housing in Mission Bay. It also will provide an upfront payment of $21.9 million for infrastructure development in Mission Bay to FOCIL-MB LLC, the infrastructure developer for Mission Bay.

These lump-sum contributions, in lieu of long-term payments, enable San Francisco to accelerate affordable housing development in the area and address the city’s needs due to further development at Mission Bay.

The acquisition plans are subject to a number of reviews before escrow can close, including by the UC Board of Regents. As a result, the exact timeline has not yet been determined. However, if all proceeds as planned, construction could be expected to occur in two phases, starting with construction of the north building in the next few years and possible completion of phase two by 2022.

UCSF well positioned for future amid financial challenges


10-year financial plan seeks to maintain excellence across research, education, patient care.

Sam Hawgood, UC San Francisco

As the worlds of health care, research and higher education undergo seismic economic shifts, UC San Francisco is uniquely well positioned to excel and even capitalize on the changes, university leaders say.

UCSF has an increased focus on its long-term financial and business planning, the details of which are spelled out in a new 10-year financial plan prepared by the university. It combines the medical center and the campus’ current and projected financial plan for the entire $4.14 billion enterprise.

The good news is that UCSF’s current financial performance exceeds projections that had been made for 2013, and the university continues to maintain a strong balance sheet, with $2.1 billion in cash and short-term investments and a projected increase over the next decade. Maintaining a strong bottom line allows the university to invest in capital projects and programs, buy new equipment and recruit top faculty.

UCSF is prepared for the challenges ahead and is taking proactive measures to ensure it continues its mission of advancing health worldwide while maintaining its commitment to the highest standards of excellence across research, education and patient care.

“We are in control. We understand the financial picture and we are in a good position for the future,” says Sam Hawgood, M.B.B.S., dean of the UCSF School of Medicine, who will become interim chancellor of UCSF on April 1, when Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, M.D., M.P.H., becomes CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The University of California Regents approved the longtime UCSF leader to serve as interim chancellor while a national search is under way for Desmond-Hellmann’s permanent replacement. Hawgood says campus leaders share a common vision that will enable them to confront the challenges ahead.

“We have the tools, we have the data, and we are well-positioned, provided we make the right strategic decisions,” Hawgood says.

That strategy is taking shape both for the big picture or long-term planning effort now underway, called UCSF 2.0, which will guide UCSF over the next decade, and the short-term clinical enterprise strategic plan that will require the medical center — like never before — to demonstrate its value as a provider of high-quality, cost-effective care.

Importantly, UCSF’s strategic priorities in support of patient care, research and education drive the financial planning process and decisions about how central resources are spent reflects the input from campus leaders and major stakeholders across the university, says John Plotts, senior vice chancellor of finance and administration.

UC reaches tentative deal with AFSCME to avert strike


Union calls off strike scheduled for March 3-7.

The University of California announced today (Feb. 27) that it has reached a tentative agreement with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees for a four-year contract covering more than 8,300 service workers.

AFSCME agreed to call off its five-day strike scheduled for March 3-7 at UC campuses and medical centers.

“It is good to have this bargaining wrapped up with a deal on its way to our valued service employees,” said Dwaine B. Duckett, UC’s vice president of human resources. “We worked hard to bridge gaps on the issues. Ultimately both sides chose compromise over conflict.”

AFSCME-represented service staff are expected to vote on the tentative contract soon.

Highlights of the agreement include:

  • Wages: 19.5 percent wage increase over four years
    • 4.5 percent increase as a signing bonus, distributed 60 days after the contract is ratified
    • 3 percent across the board and 2 percent step increase in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
  • Health benefits: No rate increases in Kaiser and Health Net pay bands 1 and 2, to protect take-home pay for lower-salaried employees.
  • Pension benefits: Per AFSCME’s request, the same pension and retiree health care programs as CNA and UPTE, in which employees contribute 9 percent of pay. UC previously offered alternatives in which workers would contribute as little as 5 percent, which AFSCME rejected.
  • Job security: Improved job protections from layoffs and use of outside contractors.

The university and AFSCME have been in contract negotiations for more than a year. UC has shown flexibility on key issues in order to reach today’s tentative agreement. No other union has been offered the freeze on health care costs, which means that an AFSCME worker will continue to pay $11.78 a month for Kaiser or $35.21 for an entire family. That same AFSCME worker at the California State University system would pay $149 a month as an individual and $392 for a family.

AFSCME service members at UC — employees such as janitors, maintenance workers, gardeners and food service workers — currently earn an average annual salary of more than $37,000, in addition to benefits.

UC and AFSCME negotiators are scheduled to return to bargaining today and Friday in an effort to reach an agreement for the union’s nearly 13,000 patient care technical employees.

AFSCME’s last two strikes in May and November cost the UC system more than $30 million to maintain critical services for patients.

Statement on announced AFSCME strike in March


Response to union’s request that patient care, service workers participate in five-day strike.

Dwaine Duckett, vice president of UC Human Resources, issued the following statement today (Feb. 20, 2014) regarding AFSCME’s announcement that it will ask patient care technical and service employees to participate in a five-day strike March 3-7, 2014:

We are deeply disappointed that even as contract negotiations continue, AFSCME leadership has chosen to take this path, which hurts our students, patients and the UC community in a number of ways. This is patently unfair to the people we serve.

At a cost to UC of about $10 million a day to ensure that critical services for students and patients continue safely, these strikes waste precious university resources and only serve to interfere with reaching a fair contract and getting our employees the raises they deserve and have been waiting too long for.

We have offered AFSCME very good contract proposals: Patient care workers would receive a wage increase of 20 percent over four years and service workers 16 percent over the same period. In addition, the university has offered to freeze employee health care costs — a benefit not offered to any other union — and the same retirement benefits that other unions have. AFSCME rejected our proposals and continues to demand more.

We have asked AFSCME leadership to bargain in good faith. Yet in announcing another strike even as the university prepares for our bargaining session next week, the union has again chosen conflict over compromise.

I urge AFSCME leaders to come to the table ready to reach a fair contract, as we are.
