New Building

A hospital like no other

Bigger isn’t always better, but we’re happy to say it’s true for the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. Now one of the nation’s most technologically advanced, sustainable hospitals will help even more children and their families. Our expansion adds 521,000 square feet of space to the existing hospital—providing a remarkable modernization in our ability to care and cure.

We’re adding 149 new patient beds, 3.5 acres of open space and gardens, the very latest in medical technology, new surgical, diagnostic and treatment rooms and a host of family-friendly amenities. Perkins+Will, in association with Hammel, Green and Abrahamson Architects, Inc. (Executive Architects and Medical Planners) designed the hospital to provide the flexibility to change as technology evolves while also offering more privacy and space for families.

Key features include:

  • Bringing nature to the forefront with 3.5 acres of healing gardens and outdoor play spaces, patios and overlooks, and large windows in each patient room for natural light.
  • State-of-the-art surgical equipment, including a hybrid OR (operating room) suite with advanced imaging technology that combines multiple procedures in one room to help achieve minimally invasive procedures with better precision, quicker surgeries and less time under anesthesia.
  • New patient rooms that provide additional privacy and space for patients and their families; all of which include sleeping accommodations for two family members.
  • Dedicated lounges, laundry rooms and patient-family kitchens are available on each level to provide space and convenience for families to relay and take care of everyday tasks.
  • Innovative sustainability features, such as water recovery for landscape irrigation, creative use of recycled and reclaimed local materials, and a unique external shading system to reduce the need for air conditioning.
  • Flexible floor space so we can adapt to new technologies and provide more efficient services as our patients’ needs evolve.
