In 2007, Laura (
@LAAF) and I committed a $27.5 million donation to Stanford Hospital’s Emergency Department. Our donation was for both the current and future Stanford Emergency Department. Today, I want to provide an update on the new Emergency Department!
Stanford is building an entirely new hospital in the heart of Silicon Valley, which will start operation in 2018.
The overall project is 824,000 square feet and will include our new Emergency Department, which will be twice the size of today’s and fully cutting-edge. The hospital will cost $1.8 billion in total. Of that, $600 million in philanthropic donations has already been raised, of a $700M target. Philanthropic donors include both individuals like us and local companies: Adobe, Apple, Cisco, eBay, HP, Intel, Intuit, Nvidia, and Oracle.
The new Stanford Hospital will be profoundly transformative for the Silicon Valley community, from complex cancer care to 3AM emergencies. The new Stanford ED will provide a more powerful healthcare safety net for our lowest-income, homeless, and undocumented immigrant neighbors. Stanford Hospital CEO, Amir Dan Rubin and colleagues, are building the future of healthcare in Silicon Valley, something Laura and I are thrilled to support.
