Jacobs Medical Center is the new centerpiece of the UC San Diego Health campus in La Jolla, California. The 10-story hospital functions as three hospitals in one — housing inpatient services for high-risk obstetrics and neonatal care, cancer care and advanced surgical care. Located adjacent to a new research facility, the 245-bed building is a translational medical center in the truest sense — facilitating the convergence of research, education and world-class clinical care.
