UCSF receives $50 million gift
Date:1/29/2014

UCSF Medical Center will name its new women's hospital at Mission Bay in honor of Betty Irene Moore, a patient safety pioneer and advocate.

The hospital has received a $50 million gift from Bay Area residents Gordon and Betty Moore to help fund the region's first women's hospital and to advance the innovative initiatives of the UCSF Center of Excellence in Women's Health. The gift is a private donation from the Moores, whose leadership and philanthropy have profoundly influenced health care practices in the United States.

Gordon Moore is a co-founder of Intel Corporation. In 2000, he and his wife Betty established the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to support progress in science, nursing and patient care, and environmental conservation.

By bringing attention to such issues as medication safety, central line-associated blood stream infections and ICU care, the Moore Foundation has helped patients avoid hundreds of thousands of hospital days, improved patient experiences and saved lives. And, thanks in large part to continued support from the Moore Foundation, UCSF has established itself as a national leader in patient safety and satisfaction.

"Gordon and Betty Moore have been amazing visionaries and philanthropists in so many fields, including health care, and we are so grateful for their support at UCSF. We are delighted to have Betty Irene Moore's name permanently associated with our new women's hospital," said Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH, Chancellor of UC San Francisco.

In recognition of the Moores' outstanding generosity, UCSF will name its new women's hospital the UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women's Hospital. The specialty hospital is part of the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, a 289-bed, state-of-the-art hospital complex for children, women and cancer patients that will open in February 2015.

"It is a privilege to have the Moore name associated with our women's hospital. Betty is an icon, an
