Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital 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 Packard Children’s Hospital will be built as part of the Renewal Project.
As part of Packard Children’s mission to provide family-centered care, the completed Packard Children’s Hospital Expansion features additional single-patient rooms 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 construction of the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital launched in Fall 2012 and be completed Winter 2016. The existing facility will remain fully operational during construction of the Packard Children’s Expansion.
