Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford
Our hospital was the vision of Lucile Salter Packard, our generous founding donor and visionary for children’s health. Her dream was simple: to nurture the body and soul of every child.
NATURE IS NURTURING
She believed in the power of nature as an important part of the healing process.
She wanted kids to be treated like kids—not just patients.
She believed that caring for a child meant involving the whole family.
