Packard at El Camino (PEC)

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford partners with El Camino Hospital in Mountain View to provide inpatient care for pediatric patients.

The Packard at El Camino (PEC) Unit is a 24-bed satellite unit of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The General Pediatric Service at PEC offers comprehensive care for a variety of general pediatric illnesses. We also provide hematology-oncology and inpatient eating disorder services through our Divisions of Hematology-Oncology and Adolescent Medicine, respectively.

The care provided at PEC is multidisciplinary and draws from the expertise of on-site Pediatric Hospitalists from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford (present 24 hours a day), specialized pediatric nursing staff, pharmacists, dieticians, child life specialists, social workers, and case managers, all in a child-friendly, intimate environment.

We strive to provide exceptional patient- and family-centered care by partnering with patients and families on daily bedside family centered rounds, emphasizing communication throughout the hospitalization, and coordinating with primary care physicians to ensure a seamless transition of care.

Physicians can reach our on-call Pediatric Hospitalist for clinical questions or referrals at 650-988-8381.
