Home » News » Sutter Health announces new US$442 mn neurological and neurosurgical care complex, San Francisco

Construction is set to begin on the new US$442 million Sutter Health neurological and neurosurgical care complex in San Francisco. Located in the Mission Bernal neighborhood, the project will bring about a new 129,000 square foot facility spread over five-storys. Stutter Health has announced that the project is part of its strategic vision to increase access to improved healthcare in the city. Furthermore, it represents the initial phase of the healthcare provider’s broader growth strategy for San Francisco. It will see nearly $1bn invested in the city over the next five years.

“Patients will be able to come to this location and visit their specialist, receive diagnostic lab and imaging, and outpatient procedures all in one complex,” Christina Oh, Sutter’s Greater San Francisco Market president said. “Having all these services under one roof and being able to provide advanced, comprehensive care for patients and their families will create a more convenient, coordinated experience.”

Hospital Facilities

The complex is set to be built where the former St. Luke’s Hospital was. It will offer a range of services, including neurology, rehabilitation, neurosurgery, lab, imaging, infusion, and an ambulatory surgery center.  Additionally, the Ray Dolby Brain Health Center and Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research and Treatment Center relocating to the new facility. This will allow patients to benefit from access to research and clinical trials. The move aims to consolidate similar services, fostering collaboration among clinicians and enhancing patient care.  Moreover, the complex will feature underground parking for added convenience.

Completion Date

Sutter Health expects to open the doors of the complex to patients by 2028. Under its long-term goal, Sutter Health also looks to add two neurological intervention suites at the CPMC Mission Bernal Campus hospital by 2027. These suites will be equipped with the latest imaging technology. This will enable rapid detection and the minimally invasive treatment of neurological emergencies, such as strokes, aneurysms, and blood clots in the brain. The Monteagle building on the Mission Bernal Campus will also undergo remodelling. This will help it provide a modern care environment for primary care and women’s OB/GYN clinics, with completion expected in summer 2025.

“Sutter Health is doubling down on its commitment to make significant investments that greatly expand access to advanced specialty care to meet the care needs of San Francisco residents and the entire Bay Area,” said Warner Thomas, president and CEO of Sutter Health.

More Sutter Health Projects

Recognizing the pressing demand for access to health care, Sutter Health is expanding its integrated care delivery system. It has planned to open 25 new ambulatory care centers by 2027 and add more than 160 hospital beds by 2025. Furthermore, Sutter is also growing its Graduate Medical Education programs. It plans to train 1,000 physician residents and fellows by 2030. The healthcare provider aims creating academic partnerships to foster diverse clinical talent reflective of the communities it serves.
