Stanford Children's Health begins $1.1B expansion

Listen

Stanford Children's Health's Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., is beginning a 521,000 square-foot expansion project slated to cost $1.1 billion.

The expansion will double the size of the current hospital and add 149 patient beds. It is expected to be completed by September 2017. The project is the first step of a multi-phase renovation project for expanding and renovating the current hospital next door. This will include creating room to grow the Pediatric Heart Center, which will open a new and larger space in 2018.

"This is excellent news for patients and their families," said Stephen Roth, MD, director of the Pediatric Heart Center. "Expanding our heart center means that even more children with complex heart problems, as well as growing numbers of adult survivors of congenital heart disease, will have access to one of America's most advanced programs. Many of these children and adult survivors have run out of options elsewhere."

Lucile Packard Children's Heart Center is the largest pediatric heart surgery program on the West Coast. More than 600 surgeries are performed there each year.
