Stanford Health Care | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Stanford (Calif.) Health Care. Formerly known as Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Stanford Health Care has 613 licensed beds, 49 operating rooms, 1,450 faculty physicians and more than 11,200 employees. Each year, the Magnet-accredited hospital sees more than 530,000 ambulatory visits.

Stanford Health Care boasts the only Level I trauma center between San Francisco and San Jose. The hospital was nationally ranked in twelve specialties, ranked No. 2 in California and No. 1 in the San Jose, Calif., metropolitan area by U.S. News & World Report in 2014-15. Stanford was also designated by Truven Health Analytics as one of the 100 Top Hospitals in the country.

Stanford Health Care has many "firsts" under its belt — it was the first hospital in the nation to be certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and is one of the first four hospitals in the U.S. to achieve Stage 7 HIMSS designation, the highest possible distinction in EMR implementation. Stanford was also the site of the first kidney transplant in California in 1960, the first successful adult human heart transplant in the U.S. in 1968 and the first successful human combined heart/lung transplant in the world in 1981.
