Strike Information for Patients

To Our Patients and Their Families:

Between Monday, March 24 and Saturday, March 29, some of our unionized employees will be on strike. You may hear increased noise levels and see picket lines on the public sidewalks around the hospitals or at our clinics.

This action is related to ongoing contract negotiations between the unions and the entire University of California (UC) system. The strike will affect all five UC medical centers, including UC San Diego Health.

 Your care is our highest priority. While we have added staff to maintain our commitment to caring for you and improving your health, it is possible that you may experience delays in tests or treatments. We apologize for these circumstances and are doing everything possible to minimize the impact on you and your family.

At UC San Diego Health, we are committed to delivering excellent health care and support services during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 858-657-7000.

Thank you for your patience and for choosing UC San Diego Health.
