Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford is expanding its walls in order to meet growing community needs for specialized pediatric and obstetric care. In order to serve this growing patient base, an expanded facility adjacent to the current children’s hospital will be built as part of the Renewal Project.
As part of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford’s mission to provide family-centered care, the completed 521,000 square foot expansion features 150 new patient beds and more space for families to be with their child during treatment and recovery. The expansion provides patients and doctors with the most modern clinical advancements and technology while also addressing the specialized needs of pediatric and obstetric patients and their families.
Site preparation and essential utility relocation commenced around the future expansion site in August 2011. The Packard Children’s Hospital expansion site prep included the demolition of 701 & 703 Welch and the construction of a shoring wall and utility tunnel in preparation for the Packard Children’s expansion.
The project officially broke ground on September 6, 2012. The existing facility will remain fully operational during construction.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in late 2016 and the new building will open for patient care in spring 2017.
