New Stanford Hospital

 “It’s about the next era of Stanford Medicine.” - Andra Blomkalns, MD

New Adult Emergency Department

The new Stanford Hospital opened in November 2019 with a much-enlarged Marc Andreessen and Laura-Arrillaga Andreessen Adult Emergency Department. Among the many innovations and state-of-art technology, the new ED includes:

  • 43,000 square feet of patient care space
  • 66 individual patient rooms
  • 9 resuscitation areas for trauma patients
  • Video capability at each bed for teleconferences
  • 4 isolation rooms for patients with infectious diseases


The new configuration will support exciting opportunities for education and research, in addition to patient care. According to Andra Blomkalns, MD, professor and chair of emergency medicine, said: “It’s not just about here and now,” she said. “It’s about the next era of Stanford Medicine.”

New Pediatric Emergency Department

The former Stanford ED has transitioned into pediatric-focused ED for patients age 20 and younger. Over the next 18 – 24 months, the space will be further transformed to create an environment conducive to pediatric emergency care. Bernard Dannenberg, MD, director of pediatric emergency medicine, has helped guide the process.
