Stanford Health Care

Palo Alto, California
In 2007, Stanford Health Care started planting the seeds toward a major transformation that pushes its approach to patient care, academic teaching, and research missions to the cutting edge of healthcare design. Perkins Eastman has been working with the leadership at Stanford Health Care and Rafael Viñoly Architects on the design and construction of a new 820,000 sf hospital, which will solidify Stanford’s ranking among the largest and best hospitals in the United States by providing distinguished healing environments while meeting current state-mandated seismic standards and providing flexible spaces that can adapt to rapid changes in technology.

As a result of this significant expansion, our team explored options for the re-use of the existing hospital, which resulted in a detailed master plan that serves as a roadmap for short-and long-term renovation projects. The most significant change to come out of the planning process is the renovation of a series of bed wings, which plays a major role in defining the hospital’s cancer care program. Focusing on the latest oncology treatment approach, our team recently completed design for the conversion of 243 private and semi-private patient beds to 144 private patient beds.

Additional renovation projects currently underway include the Hybrid OR on the 2nd floor of the existing hospital, the Cardiovascular Health Clinic as well as the upgrade of materials and waste management spaces to accommodate future service needs.

Recently completed projects include the Boswell Lobby renovation and the design of a new steam plant servicing the hospital campus.
