Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford Earns Two Awards for Health Care Design and Construction

Two distinguishing awards, announced in July, recognize the newly opened Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. Since its opening in December 2017, the hospital has received national attention for the innovative, family-centered and sustainable design of its new Main building and expanded campus.

The American Institute of Architects selected Packard Children’s for their 2018 National Healthcare Design Award which showcase the best of health care building design, health care planning and health care design-oriented research. The awards highlight the trends of health care facilities and the future direction of these facilities.

The children’s hospital was also selected as a 2018 Silicon Valley Business Journal Structures award winner for Healthcare Project of the year. The Structures award recognizes excellence in Bay Area-based health care construction projects (hospitals, medical offices or medical facilities) completed between June 2017 and June 2018.

Elevating the quality of care

“These honors reflect the tireless efforts of many contributors over the course of a decade, and led by our esteemed CEO, Christopher Dawes,” said Dennis Lund, MD, interim CEO and chief medical officer of the hospital and Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “Now, thanks to those efforts, we are seeing the benefits of what we are able to do for our patient families in our new hospital—elevating the quality of care and the patient family experience to new levels.”

In April 2018 the hospital announced that it received LEED Platinum designation from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), making it one of just five new hospitals — and the second children’s hospital — in the world to earn the USGBC’s Platinum designation.
