“What’s worse than
Getting cancer, and
not being able to get
the city’s best cancer
If you have an HMO in San Francisco,
choose Hill Physicians to keep open access
to the world-class specialists of UCSF.
There will be an important change in physician networks in San Francisco effective
January 1, 2010. Many residents that belong to an HMO may find getting a referral to
the specialists of UCSF Medical Center more difficult.
That’s why we’re partnering with Hill Physicians Medical Group, a network of doctors
that’s rated among the best in the state1. UCSF has teamed up with Hill and Catholic
Healthcare West to offer HMO patients a new network that will be the best in San
Francisco. So to keep unrestricted access to your UCSF specialists, be sure to
choose a primary care doctor who’s a member of Hill Physicians.
Why will this network be the best? Most of the best specialists in San Francisco
practice at UCSF Medical Center. In fact, in cancer, UCSF has 76% of the best
oncologists in the city2. UCSF is the only Bay Area hospital consistently ranked as
one of the top ten hospitals in the country3. So, while you might not be thinking about
us right now, we want to be there for you when you need us.
