Collaboration with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital

The Pediatric Emergency Department of Stanford Hospital continues to serve as the emergency treatment facility for Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. In an emergency, bring your child first to the Stanford Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department (900 Quarry Road Extension). If they need to stay overnight, Stanford will coordinate a seamless transfer of care to Packard Children's (or another appropriate facility).
