History of our Off Campus Facilities
Innovative Health Care Delivery
California Pacific Medical Center has a long history of reaching out across the City to serve our community in off-campus locations in different neighborhoods. While our founders may have never used the term “preventive health care,” they certainly supported the theory by opening well-baby clinics and offering health education classes across the City in their time.
One of our best known off-campus facilities is Coming Home Hospice, a former convent on Diamond Street, which was transformed in 1985 into the first residential facility especially for people in the last stages of AIDS – the first facility of its type in the country.
In March 2007, CPMC took bold steps to reverse disparate health problems suffered by the children of Bayview Hunters Point by opening its Bayview Child Health Center, which will also serve as a hub for access to community and civic resources.
