Stanford Children’s Health is the only health care network in the Bay Area – and one of the few in the country – exclusively dedicated to pediatric and obstetric care. We bring world-renowned Stanford expertise and innovation from the core of our enterprise, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, to our specialty service locations, general pediatric practices and partnerships with community hospitals across the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford was the vision of Lucile Salter Packard, our generous founding donor and visionary for children’s health. Her dream was simple: to nurture both the body and soul of every child. She believed in the power of nature as an important part of the healing process. She wanted kids to be treated like kids — not just patients. And she believed that caring for a child meant involving the whole family. Today, Stanford Children’s Health honors that vision through our dedication in delivering innovative services and unparalleled family-centered-care.
To heal humanity through science and compassion, one child and family at a time.
