Our Alliance with UCSF Health

A powerful partnership for enhanced care

At MarinHealth, we believe in going above and beyond to provide our community with the best possible care. Sometimes, that means literally going beyond our existing service area to form powerful alliances that allow us to enhance our offerings, right here in our own community. That’s why we MarinHealth continues to build on a decades-long relationship with UCSF Health. We have formed a strategic alliance that expands access to high-quality clinical care in Marin County and the North Bay.

The alliance enhances both institutions’ commitment to provide premier care in a healing environment, while maintaining each organization’s independence. As public, nonprofit entities, UCSF Health and MarinHealth share a core value of offering high-quality care to their communities.

The agreement is the highest level of integration to date between the two organizations and will provide a number of opportunities for future joint projects, including expansion of ambulatory care centers, staffed by UCSF Heath and MarinHealth providers and specialists. MarinHealth Medical Network physician offices are now part of UCSF Health, and they use the UCSF Health Electronic Medical Record (EMR), MyChart platform. The alliance enables us to more fully share best practices, and offers our patients and providers better access to state-of-the-art research and clinical trials.

Pediatric Programs

A UCSF prenatal diagnostic center staffed with specialists in high-risk obstetrics located adjacent to the hospital enables Marin women with high-risk pregnancies to get the extra monitoring they need close to home, and deliver their babies at MarinHealth Medical Center.
