Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford in Palo Alto, California, has won the prestigious AIA/AAH Healthcare Design Award.
Designed by HGA (Executive Architect and Medical Planners) and Perkins+Will (Design Architect and Sustainable Design), the hospital achieves key goals established by Stanford Children’s Health—all focused on creating America’s most technologically advanced, family friendly and environmentally sustainable hospital for babies, children and expectant mothers.
The 521,000-square-foot building more than doubles the size of the existing pediatric and obstetric hospital. The new Main building includes a bridge corridor connected to the existing building, 149 patient beds, surgery, radiology, imaging center with combined PET/MRI, interventional and catheterization labs, and nuclear medicine. Additionally, the LEED Platinum building integrates innovative building systems to reduce energy and water consumption.
The American Institute of Architects/Academy of Architecture for Health awards program showcases the best of healthcare building design, healthcare planning, and healthcare design-oriented research. Winning projects exhibit conceptual strength that solve aesthetic, civic, urban, social, and programmatic criteria.
