Growing Together

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is in the process of creating America’s most technologically advanced, family-friendly and environmentally sustainable hospital for babies, children and pregnant women. The $1.1 billion expansion, set to open summer 2017, adds 521,000 square feet of building space and 149 patient beds. Six new surgical suites, a nuclear medicine department, three new imaging units, four diagnostic units including a cardiac “hybrid” angiography suite, and more than 3.5 acres of healing gardens and green space are designed into the project.

Our expanded building will enable us to deliver the most innovative technology and treatment equipment currently available for pediatric and obstetric care in the Bay Area and beyond. It will optimize the hospital's services and infrastructure, adding private rooms, family-friendly amenities and the flexible floor space the hospital needs to adapt to new technologies and to provide more efficient services.

The award-winning firm, Perkins+Will, in association with Hammel, Green and Abrahamson Architects, leads the design and architecture of the hospital expansion. More than 800 physicians, surgeons, radiologists, nurses and parents supported the design process. More than $250 million has been contributed toward the project by local philanthropists, including the Sobrato Family Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and generous corporate partners.
