Stanford Health Care is expanding its facilities in order to accommodate advances in medical technology, increase capacity needs, meet new seismic safety requirements and transform the way that patient care is delivered.
Designed by the internationally recognized firm of Rafael Viñoly Architects in association with Lee, Burkhart, Liu, Inc., the 824,000-square-foot hospital expansion delivers seven stories of thoughtful design that combines both form and function.
The project includes the construction of a seven-story hospital building and four-story parking structure which will be located at 500 Pasteur Drive, adjacent to the existing hospital facilities at 300 Pasteur Drive.
Once completed, the hospital building will feature 368 individual patient rooms, for a total of 600 patient beds on site; an enlarged Level-1 Trauma Center and Emergency Department more than twice the size of the current Emergency Department; state-of-the-art surgical, diagnostic and treatment rooms; and acres of walking paths and gardens for patients and staff.
The completed facilities at 500 Pasteur Drive will connect seamlessly to the existing hospital facilities at 300 Pasteur Drive by way of an underground tunnel, a street level pedestrian path and a second floor pedestrian bridge.
Construction of the hospital building began in 2012 and is scheduled to open to patient care in early 2018. Stanford Health Care is open and fully operational throughout construction.
