of clinical care, research and education, UC San Diego Health Sciences maintains both clinical and academic entities.

The clinical enterprise, UC San Diego Health, is the region's only academic health system, ranked No. 1 in San Diego for six consecutive years by U.S. News & World Report. Its major facilities include UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest and Thornton Hospital, Moores Cancer Center, Shiley Eye Institute, Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute, and Jacobs Medical Center (opening in 2016), all in La Jolla, as well as other primary and specialty practices located throughout Southern California.
