STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, the largest Bay Area health-care enterprise with an exclusive focus on children and expectant women, has announced that Pediatric Associates of San Jose has joined its fast-growing network of care.
Pediatric Associates officially became a part of the Stanford Medicine Children’s Health family on Sept. 2, aligning the practice with one of the most comprehensive and sought-after health-care brands in America.
“It’s wonderful to welcome Pediatric Associates to Stanford Medicine Children’s Health,” said Christopher G. Dawes, president and chief executive officer of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “Their team has been a leader in caring for generations of families in San Jose and surrounding communities for more than 50 years.”
With a reputation for providing the highest quality of care in a fun and friendly environment, Pediatric Associates now has access to the knowledge bank and groundbreaking care and research protocols of Stanford Medicine. This further enables Pediatric Associates to deliver the most advanced care to the kids they see, and to make this care convenient for families throughout their community.
“Our greatest joy as doctors is seeing children live healthier, happy lives, and knowing that we have a critical role in their development,” said Pediatric Associates president Bryan Drucker, MD. “Joining Stanford Medicine Children’s Health will allow us to continue to ensure that our patients receive the exceptional care we are known for.”
