<P>Gordon and Betty Moore Donate $50 Million for Womens Health Longtime UC San Francisco supporters and Bay Area residents Gordon and Betty Moore have donated $50 million to the University to help fund the regions first womens hospital and to advance the innovative initia- tives of the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Womens Health. The gift is a private donation from the Moores, whose leadership and philanthropy have profoundly influenced health care practices in the United States. In recognition of the Moores outstanding generosity, UCSF will name its new womens hospital the UCSF Betty Irene Moore Womens Hospital. It is a privilege to have the Moore name associated with our womens hospital. Betty is an icon, and her long-standing work as a patient advocate is inspiring, says Mark Laret, CEO of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospitals. The Moores are national leaders in improving the quality and safety of health care, and we are thrilled to partner with them as we work to better the lives of our patients at the UCSF Betty Irene Moore Womens Hospital. Gordon Moore is a co-founder of Intel Corp., and Betty Moore is a patient-safety pioneer. In 2000, they established the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to support progress in science, nursing, and patient care, as well as environmental conservation. By bringing attention to such issues as medication safety, central line-associated bloodstream infections, and ICU care, the Moore Foundation has helped patients avoid hundreds of thousands of hospital days, has improved patients hospitalization experiences, and has saved lives. And, thanks in large part to continued support from the Moore Foundation, UCSF has estab- lished itself as a national leader in patient safety and satisfaction. The womens specialty hospital will be part of the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, a 289-bed state-of-the-art complex that will also include Benioff Childrens Hospital San Francisco (see story, left) and Bakar Cancer Hospital. The complex will open in February 2015.
