UCSF Radiology Completes Important Facility Expansion

In July 2017, UCSF Radiology broke ground on the largest-ever expansion of the Parnassus facility with new reception and holding areas. We are pleased to announce the opening with a ribbon cutting that took place in December 2018. This new space and approach to patient flow will greatly improve the patient's experience in our department. 

Key features include:

  • Enhanced way-finding signs and maps to the reception desk and waiting rooms;
  • Additional seating and restrooms for patients in the waiting rooms;
  • Six larger changing rooms that can also be used for patient consents, preps, IVs, and labs (patients who need infusions or additional prep work will be prepped in the holding room);
  • Patient lockers for quick-imaging study patients (i.e., X-ray); and,
  • Eleven bays in the holding room with restrooms and utility rooms.

Additionally, patients can go from the reception desk to the changing room, get prepped and stay in their gowns while they wait to be escorted to the procedure or scan room and then discharged or brought to the recovery room/post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) if needed. 

The goal throughout this expansion has been to pair our caring staff and ever-improving imaging technologies with a new, soothing environment that provides opportunities for enhanced logistics. It has been an honor to see this project unfold. Though we are not done (construction will continue on the third floor, where more radiology rooms will be added), we are excited to share photos of this renovated, upgraded space.
