Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center brings together services and activities that educate, support and provide access to resources for families. It is a special place where families can find relaxation, conduct personal business in the business center and perhaps even forget for a little while that they are in a hospital. 

While your child is a patient at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, you can access the Family Resource Center where you can:

  • Catch up on work in a semi-private office
  • Learn more about your child’s condition
  • Access the internet and computers
  • Check out books from the library for patients and siblings
  • Relax in the center and read or play games
  • Look at our education classes calendar and sign up for free classes
  • Obtain personal hygiene items such as toothbrushes and shampoo

A Family Resource Center team member is available to provide guidance and amenities.  

The Family Resource Center is located in the Main building lobby near Sophie’s Corner.

Hours: Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., weekends 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Phone: (650) 721-0874

Using Secure E-mail
