Vision, Mission & Values
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.
To heal humanity through science and compassion, one child and family at a time.
Stanford Children's Health CARES by aligning people and resources to provide extraordinary patient and family-centered care.
