What is CPMC?

California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) is made up of four of the oldest medical centers in San Francisco, consisting of the California Campus (previously known as the Children's Hospital of San Francisco), Pacific Campus (previously known as the Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center), Davies Campus (previously Ralph K. Davies Hospital), and St. Luke's Campus.

History of CPMC

CPMC was formed in 1991 by the merger of Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center and Children's Hospital of San Francisco. Ralph K. Davies Medical Center became the third campus of CPMC in 1998; and on January 1, 2007, St. Luke's Hospital became CPMC's fourth campus.

Hospital, Clinic, and Research Facilities

Each of the four campuses contain a hospital and an emergency department, and provide inpatient and outpatient services. In addition to the hospital campuses, CPMC owns and/or operates multiple outpatient clinics, a research facility and several other properties more fully described in the most recent Institutional Master Plan (IMP) document.

CPMC is one of three hospitals that operate hospital facilities at more than one location within San Francisco (the other two are Kaiser and UCSF). St. Francis Memorial and St. Mary's Medical Center operate as independent facilities, although both are a part of the Catholic Healthcare West (CHW) system.

State law (SB 1953) requires that all acute-care hospitals be seismically upgraded such that they are operational after a major earthquake. CPMC is one of four hospitals in the City currently planning to build new facilities to comply with this law; the other three hospitals include UCSF, SF General Hospital, and Chinese Hospital.

Three of CPMC's four acute-care hospitals must be rebuilt or de-licensed in order to comply with state law, including the hospitals at California, Pacific, and St. Luke's Campus'. The Davies Campus was retrofitted in 2008, enabling this campus to accommodate acute-care hospital services until 2030.
