Every day, the Children’s Heart Center at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford delivers unsurpassed outcomes for patients with complex heart conditions. As a not-for-profit hospital, we are very grateful for the donor support that helps make this possible.
“There are hundreds of good children’s hospitals in our country, and only a handful of truly great ones,” says David Alexander, MD, president and CEO of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health. “The truly great ones, like Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, have outstanding leaders and clinicians, an academic research infrastructure, and one other key ingredient—community support that provides resources for innovation.”

Frank Hanley, Stephen Roth, Chandra Ramamoorthy, and many others. This team has propelled the Children’s Heart Center into the ranks of the nation’s best.
