The New Stanford Hospital

Scheduled to open to patients in 2018, Stanford Health Care is adding more beds, private rooms, state-of-the-art operating suites, expanded emergency services and the flexibility the hospital needs to adapt to advancing technologies and more streamlined services.

The new Stanford Hospital will deliver a model of coordinated care that’s built around the unique physical and emotional needs of each patient. Designed by the internationally recognized firm Rafael Viñoly Architects, the new 824,000-square-foot facility will feature amenities and services focused on the health and well-being of patients, as well as the most advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical technologies. It will house an additional 368 beds, bringing the total to 600 on site, and the new Emergency Department will have twice the floor space of the current facility. The building will be connected to the current hospital by a bridge and tunnel.

The current hospital was constructed in 1959 and cannot be brought up to state-mandated seismic standards. The new hospital will feature natural light, rooftop gardens, and the latest innovations in green technology to reduce the hospital’s environmental impact.
