About Us

Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford

Opened in 1991, the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford is the heart and soul of Stanford Children's Health. Nationally ranked and internationally recognized, our 361-bed hospital is devoted entirely to pediatrics and obstetrics. In December 2017 we doubled the size of our hospital and opened the doors to the most technologically advanced, family-friendly and environmentally sustainable children’s hospitals in the nation. Our six centers of excellence provide comprehensive services and deep expertise in key obstetric and pediatric areas: brain & behavior, cancer, heart, pregnancy & newbornpulmonary and transplant. We also provide an additional, wide range of services for babies, kids and pregnant moms.
