Who We Are

The UC Davis Health Facilities Planning and Development division (FP&D) is responsible for planning and executing UC Davis Health’s commitment to providing cutting-edge healthcare to the Sacramento region and beyond. At the forefront of this mission is UC Davis Health’s unparalleled capital program, known as “Vision 2030” – currently valued at $7.5 billion and one of the largest of its kind in the United States. The delivery of this incredible program requires a dedicated and expert team of planning, design, construction and real estate professionals managing a total portfolio of projects numbering in the hundreds.

Beyond Vision 2030, FP&D advises and assists UC Davis Health’s leadership with the planning, oversight and allocation of investments in future and existing capital and space improvements for all of UC Davis Health. FP&D’s diverse portfolio ranges from small office renovations to state-of-the-art hospital buildings, not only at the Medical Center in Sacramento but throughout the region. In addition to construction projects, FP&D manages furniture planning and replacements, medical equipment replacements, lease negotiations and lease space property management, capital and space planning, and serves as the building official for UC Davis Health.
