UCSF Mount Zion

Design That Promotes Healing

Built from the ground up to house two related yet separate entities, the Osher Building is home to both the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSF General Internal Medicine department. The five-story building features a distinct brick base that is in harmony with the masonry buildings in the neighborhood and a wood cladding system that is evocative of the new approaches in medicine taking place inside. It was recognized with a Design Build Excellence Award in Healthcare Facilities by the Design Build Institute of America.

The Osher Center combines practices from both eastern and western medicine in one facility. The building features intimate, friendly spaces that include day-lit exam rooms, calm areas for meditation and reflection, specialty spaces for yoga and body work, and a rooftop Japanese healing garden. In the way, the building itself can be seen as a physical manifestation of integral medicine.

The Mount Zion Medical Building’s sustainable design maximizes energy and material conservation and attained LEED Silver certification.
