Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford in Stanford, Calif., is planning an expansion of its heart center.
This month marks a two-year countdown to the opening of the hospital’s $1.1-billion, 521,000-square-foot expansion. Almost doubling the size of the current hospital and adding 149 patient beds, the expansion and new main building will increase access to America’s most advanced and family friendly hospital for children and expectant mothers.
The September 2017 opening will also provide a launching pad for expanding and renovating the current hospital next door. This will include creating room to grow the nationally ranked Pediatric Heart Center, which due to demand will premiere a new and larger space in 2018.
