Lucille Packard Children's Hospital
Palo Alto, CA
This 521,000sf, $1.1B addition to the existing Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University includes 104 new private acute and 96 critical care pediatric beds, extensive new surgical and diagnostic services, a below-grade parking structure, a new main entrance, and public amenities, as well as three new multi-use outdoor garden spaces that link the addition to the existing hospital. It opened in December, 2017.
The 6-story structure features a central circulation and utility spine that services two largely identical 4-story inpatient towers atop a 2-story diagnostic and treatment podium. The towers are asymmetrically arranged to ensure that no patient rooms have views into other rooms. A centralized series of lounges, patient dining areas, consultation rooms, and play rooms overlook the gardens and site. The lower diagnostic floor seamlessly connects expanded surgery and imaging to existing facilities, while the upper podium level, which aligns with the existing entrance, includes a cafe, gift shop, chapel, and cafeteria spaces arrayed around a 1.5-acre garden space above the OR suite.
MCH provided full-scope acoustical, noise and vibration consulting throughout.
