Women's Health Primary Care Expands at Mount Zion and North Waterfront in San Francisco
With the loud buzz of the Mission Bay Hospital opening in the background, Women's Health Primary Care (WHPC) has quietly doubled its size and patient capacity. As part of the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, WHPC has resided on the fourth floor of the Women's Health Center since its 2002 opening, which conveniently brought together many health services for women in one building at Mount Zion. WHPC has now expanded into a remodeled third floor and enhanced its space on the fourth floor, improving patient services at 2356 Sutter St.
In addition to the expansion at Mount Zion, Women's Health Primary Care has opened a new practice site co-located with UCSF Women's Imaging at the newly built outpatient offices at 1725 Montgomery St., where patients can receive primary care, mammograms, ultrasounds and bone density screening in one place. Located in the Telegraph Hill/North Waterfront district of San Francisco, this beautiful new clinic is one block from The Embarcadero and accessible via Muni's "F" train.
Women's Health Primary Care has three new doctors and two new nurse practitioners, and is accepting new patients at both the Mount Zion and Montgomery Street locations. Information about the new providers is available below in our directory. Patients wishing to establish primary care with WHPC should call (844) PCP-UCSF.
Our Women’s Health Primary Care practice includes internists and nurse practitioners with a special interest and expertise in caring for women. Our practice provides comprehensive care with an emphasis on prevention, education and patient participation. When needed, patients are referred to our network of specialty providers.
