Data, research, education and knowledge sharing — all work together to drive innovation across University California Health (UCH). That’s because we are on a constant quest to provide you with better care.
We share knowledge across the hospitals and clinics of UCH. We do this so you and your family benefit from academic medicine that is continually improving. You get care that is some of the best in the nation because our teams bring knowledge from world-leading researchers to you.
We have specialists in more than 150 areas of medicine, and we treat 1.8 million patients across California each year. With that volume and experience, you get medical care that’s drawn from years of experience and the most current practices.
From Sacramento to San Diego, you are at the center of everything we do: We’re more than an academic health system — we’re your community.
UCH Academic Health Centers
Our physicians and researchers share knowledge—improving patient care for common conditions and the most serious.
They study large sets of data to spark insights that lead to better treatments. They conduct thousands of clinical trials, providing options not available elsewhere. They collaborate across UC to bring you new options and best practices faster—regardless of which UCH hospital or clinic you visit.

We have five National Cancer Institute- Designated (NCI) Comprehensive Cancer Centers across UCH. No other health system in the U.S. has this many. By joining forces, our cancer centers discover—including through clinical trials—new treatment options faster to improve your cancer care.
For matters of the heart, you want exceptional care. Cardiac surgeons across UCH discuss cases, review data and deliver personal care—along with peace of mind.
Through the University of California Health Milk Bank, new parents with the most fragile infants can access human milk for their baby. And parents with extra human milk can donate to feed sick and premature infants.
When your child needs complex care, you want pediatric experts up to date on the latest treatment options, including clinical trials. At our children’s hospitals, we bring the same level of innovation and expertise to our youngest patients as we do our oldest.
