Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of the hospital’s new expansion located in Palo Alto, California, scheduled to welcome patients this month.
The hospital expansion will more than double the size of the existing campus by linking the original hospital with a new main building, bringing the total hospital space to measure 844,000 square feet.
Private patient rooms are more spacious, with sleeping accommodations for two family members and amenities on every floor. Special features that help make the space unique and kid friendly include a large digital interactive wall, as well as a dedicated broadcast studio.
Surrounding the new building, 3.5 acres of gardens and green spaces reflect the flora and topography of Northern California. The hospital’s Dunlevie Garden features educational and engaging sculptures for children to physically explore.
The project team included Perkins+Will as exterior and interior designer, HGA as medical planner and DPR Construction as general contractor.
