A “Topping Out” ceremony was held at the construction site of the new Outpatient Center at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland with the symbolic lifting of a top beam that had been signed and decorated by hospital staff, patients, families and community members. Four young patients were able to witness the lifting of the decorated beam along with hospital staff and community leaders. The center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
