Celebrating 1 year in our new hospital


One year ago on December 9, we moved 90 patients into our brand new Main building, officially marking the opening of our new hospital. This December, in celebration of our first anniversary, we are sharing some extraordinary stories of the care and experiences that happen every day at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.

Thanks to the care teams, support staff, volunteer and donor communities who have made this beautiful new building a place where we deliver the finest medical care possible and offer hope and healing to our patients and their families.

We will be adding new stories all month long.

    Our grandson Ethan was born at the old hospital, had open heart surgery and then was part of the move to the new hospital. He received wonderful care and has had an amazing year without complications! We are so grateful to all at Stanford Children’s Hospital!
