One Mom's Vision

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford was the vision of Lucile Salter Packard, our generous founding donor and visionary for children’s health. Her dream was simple: to nurture both the body and soul of every child. She believed in the power of nature as an important part of the healing process. She wanted kids to be treated like kids — not just patients. And she believed that caring for a child meant involving the whole family. Today, Stanford Children’s Health honors that vision through our dedication in delivering innovative services and unparalleled family-centered-care.

Our commitment to exceptional care continues to guide Stanford Children’s Health as we build our new state-of-the-art hospital. The expansion includes more than 3.5 acres of healing gardens and green space, private patient rooms and an adaptable design that will accommodate cutting-edge protocols and equipment. When we open in December 2016, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford will be one of the world’s most technologically advanced, family-friendly and environmentally sustainable hospitals for children and pregnant moms.

Our passion is providing unparalleled care with tremendous heart.
