Stanford Hospital & Clinics today began construction of an outpatient center in Redwood City.  This is the first time that Stanford Hospital & Clinics has opened a comprehensive outpatient center away from the Palo Alto campus. Doors are scheduled to open in late 2008 and services will include, but are not limited to, Centers such as Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic Spine, Neurosurgery Spine, Dermatology, Aesthetic Dermatology, Pain Management, Ambulatory Surgery, one of the largest free-standing Imaging Centers in Northern California, and the largest Sleep Study Center on the West Coast. The new Stanford University Medicine Outpatient Center is conveniently located on Broadway near U.S. Hwy 101 (Woodside Road exit). 

"This new site will give patients additional access to the unique and excellent state-of the art care that we provide," said Martha Marsh, president and CEO of Stanford Hospital & Clinics. "The population of our area continues to grow and as time passes our communities will have more residents, particularly seniors, who are in need of locally accessible leading-edge medical services.  Stanford University Medicine Outpatient Center will help to meet that growing need while allowing us to maintain the expertise and quality of care on which our patients rely."

As medical technology advances, patient care can be provided outside the hospital and in the doctor's office or in advanced technology outpatient settings like this new center.  This shift to outpatient care provides relief to the overcrowding currently being experienced in the emergency rooms and hospitals throughout the Peninsula.  

Stanford University Medicine Outpatient Center at Redwood City will make use of the facilities originally occupied by Excite@Home during the dot com boom. The project does not require additional development and is an interior-walls tenant improvement remodel.  "Stanford University Medicine Outpatient Center will provide the most technologically advanced and up-to-date outpatient care and will help allow us to continue to deliver the highest quality patient care," said Marsh. "We are very excited to provide Stanford's state-of-the-art medical care on the Peninsula."

Stanford Hospital & Clinics is known worldwide for advanced patient care provided by its physicians and staff, particularly for the treatment of rare, complex disorders in areas such as cardiac care, cancer treatment, neurosciences, surgery, and organ transplants.

Stanford Hospital & Clinics is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of "America's Best Hospitals" and currently ranks 13th in the nation.
