From One Mom's Vision to the Hospital of the Future

Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford began with one mom's vision. Lucile Salter Packard, our generous founder and visionary for children's health, believed strongly in caring for both the body and soul of every child. That commitment to nurturing care continues to guide Stanford Children's Health and our hospital, named in honor of Mrs. Packard.

Opened in 1991, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is the heart and soul of Stanford Children’s Health. Nationally ranked and internationally recognized, our 311-bed hospital is devoted entirely to pediatrics and obstetrics. Our six centers of excellence provide comprehensive services and deep expertise in key obstetric and pediatric areas: brain & behavior, cancer, heart, pregnancy & newborn, pulmonary, and transplant. We also provide an additional, wide range of services for babies, kids, and pregnant moms.

We provide extraordinary care today, and our new expanded hospital will allow us to be even better. We’re currently building the country’s most technologically advanced, family-friendly, and environmentally sustainable hospital for children and pregnant moms, to open in 2017.

Stanford University School of Medicine is a premier research-intensive medical school that improves health through leadership, collaborative discoveries, and innovation. The School of Medicine consistently ranks among the nation’s top 10 medical schools, integrating research, medical education, patient care, and community service. The School of Medicine’s partnership with Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and Stanford Hospital & Clinics facilitates the rapid translation of basic science into better clinical care for patients of all ages.
