SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The University of California, San Francisco says it is naming its future women’s hospital after a health care philanthropist who is the wife of Intel Corp. co-founder Gordon Moore.

UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellman announced Wednesday that the hospital scheduled to open in about one year in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco will be called the UCSF Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital.

Desmond-Hellman says the building will bear Betty Moore’s name in recognition of the $50 million she and her husband have donated to the project. The couple has made several other multi-million dollar gifts to support research and nursing education at UCSF.

Along with serving pregnant women in a 36-bed birth center and nine deluxe delivery rooms, the new hospital is expected to provide treatment for gynecological disorders and breast cancer.
