The full project is expected to be completed in 2025.

By HFT Staff

DPR Construction celebrated the topping out of the new outpatient pavilion at UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest on June 23, 2023. 

Part of the first phase of the UC San Diego Long Range Development Plan, the six-story, 250,000-square-foot advanced medical facility will house key clinical programs, addressing the region's growing demand for specialized diagnostic, treatment and surgical services, notably in cancer care. 

The first phase of construction also includes a new parking structure to provide approximately 1,850 spaces for employees, patients and visitors, plus related road and utility infrastructure. 

The project team has focused on a “one team” approach throughout the project, working with a shared mission to navigate challenges together, pointed toward success for all. 

The project is taking place on a complex site. In addition to needing to plan around an active hospital campus – the emergency department driveway is adjacent to the project site, for instance – the project is also in the middle of a residential neighborhood with many one-way streets, meaning logistical planning for deliveries and even staff arrival has been important. The site itself occupies a ravine that had a 75-foot elevation change from one end to the other before work began. 

Completion of the project is expected in 2025.
