UC San Francisco Drops Plans to Close Mission Clinic

A reproductive health clinic serving San Francisco’s Mission District that is threatened with closure will stay open another year, UCSF officials say.

The New Generation Health Center serves primarily low-income teens and young adults, and the announcement came after patients, neighbors and health providers expressed concern and anger over UCSF’s plans to shut it down this summer.

For weeks, university officials had insisted that New Generation must close because of an annual budget deficit of more than $400,000. They said the clinic’s financial troubles stemmed from a decline in both patients and grant revenue over the last five years.
