Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) Stanford in Palo Alto, California, has won an Award of Merit from ENR California Best Projects 2018. LPCH won in the Healthcare category for northern California.
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.
“Creating an environment inclusive of both parents and children was a key goal of the design,” said Dan Rectenwald, AIA, Healthcare Principal and Chief Operating Officer of HGA. “Through open houses, simulations, tours and feedback from physicians, hospital staff and the Packard Children’s Family Advisory Council, the project team was able to design a facility that sets patient safety and the patient-family experience as the highest priority.”
