Administrative History

On July 1, 1966, University of California, San Diego Regents assumed operation of San Diego County General Hospital as the teaching hospital for the new School of Medicine at UCSD. The name changed to University Hospital of San Diego County in 1968. The main hospital building is located 12 miles from the UCSD campus in Hillcrest. Originally, the UCSD Medical Center, in additional to the University Hospital, incorporated the School of Medicine in La Jolla, County Mental Health complex, the Burn and Regional Trauma Center, and the Outpatient Center by 1981. In 1993, the John M. and Sally B. Thornton Hospital and Perlman Ambulatory Care Center opened in La Jolla.
