Stanford Hospital | 100 great hospitals in America 2016
Stanford (Calif.) Health Care-Stanford Hospital. Founded in 1959 as the Palo Alto-Stanford Hospital Center, Stanford Hospital today has 613 licensed beds, about 1,500 faculty physicians and more than 1,000 interns and residents.
The academic health system is building a new Stanford Hospital to meet California-mandated seismic safety standards and support the overall growth of the medical center. Scheduled to open to patients in early 2018, the 824,000-square-foot building will include a larger Level I trauma center and an emergency department that is more than twice the size of the current one.
Nationally ranked in 13 specialties, Stanford Hospital earned a spot on U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll in 2015-16, clocking in at No. 15. The publication also named Stanford Hospital the No. 1 hospital in California. Stanford Hospital has received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and Healthgrades gave the hospital its Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence in 2015 and 2016.
