When you go to a University of California hospital or physician, you can benefit from the expertise across six world-class academic medical centers.
That means you are being cared for by a team of physicians, researchers and clinicians at the top of their fields: Academic medicine specialists who treat rare conditions so frequently that even the most complex illnesses can be addressed. Experts in multiple fields who work together to share research, data and best practices across the nation's largest academic health system — to develop breakthrough treatments.
Whether your condition is rare or common, the care you need can be found at the hospitals and clinics of University of California Health. The innovations we pursue are personal for us — and for you.
Leading California — and the Nation
No matter how you look at it, University of California Health is a leader in quality care. U.S. News & World Report ranks UCH hospitals as among the best in the state.
Research ultimately leads to better health care. The National Institutes of Health funds more research at the University of California than any other system in the nation. Through its funding, NIH supports promising research that helps to improve health, reduce illness and disability, and lengthen our lives.
And Vizient, a group of more than 5,000 hospitals, regularly recognizes UCH’s achievements in quality and accountability.
