Keep Care in the East Bay

Keep Care in the East Bay

Since Children’s Hospital Oakland became an affiliate of UCSF in 2014, UCSF has moved jobs and services to its flagship campus in San Francisco’s Mission Bay, forcing East Bay families to travel farther for medical care. Doctors, nurses and caregivers have spoken out against UCSF’s stewardship of the hospital, but UCSF refuses to even divulge the degree to which patients are being diverted to San Francisco.

After seeing their colleagues at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute laid off as UCSF shuttered the Institute, more than 1,000 workers at Children’s Hospital Oakland are demanding provisions in their next contracts that will make it harder for UCSF to eliminate healthcare jobs in the East Bay and concentrate care in San Francisco. But UCSF is refusing to commit to keeping services and caregivers in the East Bay.
