Patients moved to new UCSF Mission Bay Medical Center in San Francisco

UCSF will open its new Mission Bay campus on Sunday.

UCSF Medical Center is transferring some 120 patients to the new center at Mission Bay in San Francisco. After nearly a decade of planning and building, this is opening day.

Altogether, 40 ambulances will be involved in the big move, which started at 7 a.m. Sunday.

The $1.5 billion medical center consists of three hospitals. One is for children, another for women, and a third specializes in cancer patients. founder Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne donated $100 million for the hospital that now bears their name, but he says the entire tech community contributed.

"Whether it was giving money, designing technology, creating a patient solution," he said.

On Sunday, Benioff tweeted updates with photos of patients on the move.

He also thanked San Francisco police for providing escorts to the new facility.
