Hospital and Clinics
At Stanford Health Care,
we seek to provide patients with the very best in diagnosis and treatment, with outstanding quality, compassion and coordination. With an unmatched track record of scientific discovery, technological innovation and translational medicine, Stanford Medicine physicians are pioneering leading edge therapies today that will change the way health care is delivered tomorrow.
As part of our spirit of discovery, we also leverage our deep relationships with luminary Silicon Valley companies to develop new ways to deliver preeminent patient care.
Stanford Children’s Health and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital
is the only network in the area—and one of the few in the country—exclusively dedicated to pediatric and obstetric care. Our doctors and facilities bring our Stanford Children’s Health level of extraordinary care to our multiple specialty locations, pediatric practices and partner hospital locations across the entire San Francisco Bay Area. Which means that a Stanford Children’s Health physician is easy to access, closer to home.
The Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System
is located just four miles from Stanford University Medical Center, with over 960 inpatient beds. All medical and surgical services are completely integrated with their respective Stanford departments. The Urology section at VAPAHCS provides comprehensive patient care with multi-disciplinary clinics in genitourinary oncology, stone disease, and spinal cord injury. The Palo Alto Health Care System serves as a regional Veterans Affairs referral center for genitourinary oncology; minimally invasive surgery, with advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery platforms; and urolithiasis, with an on-site shock wave lithotriptor. The VAPAHCS also houses a West Coast regional spinal cord injury center.
The Santa Clara Valley Medical Center
serves as the county and city medical facility for Santa Clara County and the city of San Jose, with 641 inpatient beds and nearly 100,000 emergency room visits yearly. It is approximately a 30 minute drive South of Stanford University Medical Center. It houses the Regional Federal Spinal Cord and Head Injury Rehabilitation Center for Northern California, and thus provides in-depth exposure to neurourology. Valley Medical Center is also the Regional Trauma Center, and as such, provides experience in the diagnostic evaluation and management of patients with urologic trauma. The institution also provides experience in a wide variety of common and unusual urologic problems indigenous to specific patient populations (e.g., genitourinary tuberculosis and stone disease). On a voluntary basis during this rotation, the resident has the opportunity to participate monthly with one of the faculty at a nearby vasectomy clinic.
