The New Stanford Hospital and Clinics, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, will replace the existing main Stanford Hospital on an adjacent 12 acre site.
The new, base-isolated hospital will accommodate 600 patient beds. The GLS scope of work encompasses all areas outside the building footprint, including a campus promenade, courtyards, hospital forecourt, fountains and service areas. GLS is also designing extensive 3rd floor roof gardens for use by patients, families and staff; these gardens are especially complex because they are located directly over operating rooms. The two main ground level spaces are the Entry and Drop-off Plaza and the Orchard of Medicinal Trees, which is the gateway symbol for the new hospital.
