The Mercury News

The University of California, San Diego plans to build a $664 million specialty hospital in La Jolla. The university on Thursday was scheduled to announce plans for Jacobs Medical Center, a 245-bed facility opening in 2016. The 10-story facility will be next to the university’s Thornton Hospital. It will offer maternity and infant care, cancer treatment and advanced surgery—specialties that UCSD plans to transfer from its other medical campus in San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood.
