Stanford University Medical Center has transformed countless lives in our community, offering the highest quality medical services available anywhere right in our own backyard. The Renewal Project will rebuild and modernize the facilities that are the foundation of our community’s healthcare services. The cornerstone of the Renewal Project is providing safe, modern hospitals with adequate capacity for patient care.
