San Francisco Chronicle

Improved health care for Bay Area children is the promise of the latest alliance in the hospital industry.

UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital Oakland announced Wednesday a joining of forces that “brings together two leading Bay Area children’s hospitals, strengthening their abilities to meet marketplace expectations, including the Affordable Care Act.”

The agreement, two years in the making, combines UCSF’s 800 pediatricians and pediatric specialists with Children’s 750 physicians and specialists in a combined 23 separate sites, forming the largest network of pediatric providers in Northern California, stretching from the Oregon border to San Luis Obispo and east to Reno.
