The Lucille Packard Children's Hospital Expansion is an eight story facility, two stories below grade and six stories above grade, approximately 800,000 square feet.  The LPCH Expansion provides an additional 104 patient beds to the existing facility for a total of 361 patient beds that will serve a growing community with specialized pediatric and obstetric care.  Amenities on the 3.5 acre site located in Palo Alto, CA include a 2 story below grade parking garage, outdoor meditation gardens, and a chapel in close proximity to Stanford University and the Stanford Shopping Mall.   The design emphasis is centered around creating an inviting family environment with special attention to children and sustainability.  Visitors and patients will experience natural light throughout and views overlooking gardens and nearby surrounding Redwoods from interior lobbies, waiting areas, and patient rooms.  Construction of the LPCH Expansion began early in 2012.
