UCSD plans county’s first cancer hospital
San Diego Union-Tribune

The county’s first cancer hospital is hiding behind the growing blue-green facade of UC San Diego’s Jacobs Medical Center.

When the 10-story, $839 million facility opens in 2016, the Pauline and Stanley Foster Hospital for Cancer Care will occupy floors four through six.

While it will not be a standalone structure like City of Hope in the Los Angeles area or the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, the three-floor, 108-bed specialty hospital will nonetheless represent a shift in treatment options for local residents.
