During the 1980s, both Stanford and UCSF engaged in major hospital expansion projects. Subsequent cutbacks of federal funds
resulted in the disappearance of traditional profit margins despite sizeable cuts in budgets at both institutions. In 1986,
California Pacific Medical Center, Stanford, and UCSF established the California Transplant Donor Network in San Francisco
to eliminate competition for transplant organs. This unusual act of cooperation was followed by a meeting in 1993 of Stanford
Dean David Korn with UCSF Dean Joseph Martin to discuss other areas of possible cooperation between the two medical schools.
