UC San Francisco will build a new hospital at its Parnassus Heights campus backed by a $500 million donation from the Helen Diller Foundation. The $1.5 billion project will replace the Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital and is expected to open before 2030. Moffitt Hospital, the current patient care facility built in the 1950s, does not meet seismic code requirements and can’t be used after 2030. The late Helen Diller and her husband Sanford, founder of the Prometheus Real Estate Group, have given more than $1.15 billion to UC San Francisco. [Mercury News]
