Jacobs Medical Center, located near the main UC San Diego campus in La Jolla, is one of the two UC San Diego hospitals. This 364-bed hospital is considered the inpatient hub for cancer care at UC San Diego given that it is adjacent to the Moores Cancer Center. Cancer care is emphasized at Jacobs Medical Center with floors dedicated to medical oncology, BMT, inpatient hospice, surgical oncology, and a separate medical, surgical, and neurologic ICU.
The Bone Marrow Transplantation Service is based out of the Jacobs Medical Center and performs approximately 150 autologous and allogenic transplantations per year and is the largest transplant program in San Diego. The 6th floor is dedicated to BMT and hematologic malignancy patients and features a full-floor air-filtration system which allows immunocompromised patients to travel around the unit safely.
At Jacobs Medical Center, fellows rotate on the separate medical oncology and hematology consult services along with rotating on the Bone Marrow Transplant inpatient unit.
