Hoover Pavilion Project Overview
Hoover Pavilion, the original Palo Alto Hospital, has been renovated to accommodate modern medicine. Now complete, the improved facility houses community physicians and Stanford Hospital clinics. It also serves as the new home of the Stanford Health Library.
Through the restoration and reuse of the historic 1931 façade and building, the project honors the landmark structure’s place in the legacy of caring at Stanford and solidifies its future as part of the next generation of medicine.
The Hoover Pavilion is being integrated into the surrounding site through extensive landscaping and gardens for easier patient and employee access. The project also includes the construction of a new parking garage. The nine-level parking structure (with three levels below ground) adds more than 1,000 new parking spaces for employees, patients and staff, and is constructed of precast elements including a hybrid moment frame system for superior seismic performance. The structure was completed and opened in September 2013. Additionally, the campus will expand by the building a new medical office building on the northwest portion of the site.
