Contra Costa Times

Gov. Jerry Brown joined local leaders Monday to break ground for an outpatient center at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.

The six-story, 89,000-square-foot building will be the first step in a 10-year expansion to rebuild and upgrade the health center to meet state seismic standards.

“This is the confluence of so many different minds, investment streams, imaginations; that’s what it takes,” Brown said.

The governor noted that the hospital represents a connection of the University of California, Oakland, San Francisco, and philanthropists Marc and Lynne Benioff.
