Healing humanity through science and compassion, one patient at a time.
Stanford Health Care, along with Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley and Stanford Medicine Partners, is part of the adult health care delivery system of Stanford Medicine. Combining clinical care, research, and education to advance the understanding and practice of medicine, we provide compassionate, coordinated care personalized for the unique needs of every patient.
We are proud to provide patients with the very best in diagnosis and treatment. And we are pioneering leading-edge therapies that will change the way health care is delivered tomorrow.
Stanford Medicine is an ecosystem comprising the School of Medicine and the pediatric and adult health care delivery systems. Together, we harness the full potential of biomedicine through collaborative research, education, and clinical care for patients of all ages. Precision Health is at the core of what we do, preventing disease before it strikes and treating it decisively when it does. Together, uniting our diverse perspectives and collective expertise for the greater good, we are Stanford Medicine.
Delivering Better Care
Stanford Health Care is creating new delivery models, leveraging our advanced resources to create seamless continuity of care for every patient. From our suite of virtual care services – to our primary care offices throughout the Bay Area, outpatient clinics in Redwood City and Palo Alto, and Stanford South Bay Cancer Center – people from around the region and around the world turn to Stanford Health Care for comprehensive solutions to meet all of their health care needs.
At the center of our health system will be the most advanced hospital in the world. The new Stanford Hospital will make our bold vision for compassionate, coordinated, leading edge care – personalized for the unique needs of every patient – a reality for more people than ever before.
Although the leadership of Stanford Health Care and Stanford University work in close partnership, the hospital and university are separate legal entities. Stanford Health Care cannot access the university’s endowment, nor is the endowment part of the hospital’s budget.
Quality of Care
We are committed to providing, clear, accurate and honest information about our quality of care, so that patients can make informed health care decisions.
We are responsible for some of the most important medical advances of the 20th century, and we continue building on our legacy in the 21st.
We dedicate considerable resources to improve the health and well-being of the community.

340B Savings in Action
The 340B program creates opportunities for Stanford to offer expanded services to improve the health of our community, and ensure that the cost of prescription medication is not a barrier for patients in need.
Crisis Standard of Care
As a Level 1 trauma center, Stanford Health Care always has a “crisis standards of care” document in place, which defines our organization’s plans for responding in the event that resources — such as beds, staffing, space or equipment — become scarce or unavailable to provide normal standards of care. We are currently functioning with normal surge protocols.
