Stanford (CA) hospital plans to expand, modernize hospital
Plans are moving forward to replace the old Stanford (CA) Hospital with a new one on the leading edge of innovation. The new facility will be designed to set the standard for safety and being flexible enough to accommodate yet-to-be-imagined medical technology. The planned seven-story hospital, costing about $2 billion, is scheduled to open in 2015 and will have 1.1 million square feet and add 144 beds. The new hospital is part of a larger renewal project at Stanford Medical Center that will modernize and expand Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, replace laboratories in the School of Medicine, and renovate the Hoover Pavilion for community health providers' office space.
