Stanford Health Care Celebrates Opening of New Outpatient Center in Redwood City

New Pavilion Brings Expanded Stanford Medicine Services to the Community

Redwood City, Calif.  (June 25, 2018) – Stanford Health Care (SHC) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to celebrate the opening of its new Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center, Pavilion D facility in Redwood City, CA. Attendees included Stanford Health Care leadership and medical staff, community members and public officials. The new facility is scheduled to open for patient care on July 9, 2018.

The Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center was Stanford Health Care’s first outpatient facility, which opened in 2009, extending Stanford’s leading-edge care by offering clinical advancements, coordinated care and an unparalleled patient experience. State-of-the-art medical care and services will be provided in this new building, including an expanded Orthopedic Clinic; Digestive Health Center; Pelvic Health Center; Endoscopy Procedure Suite; and Imaging.

“Our wonderful new facility brings together a diverse team of Stanford clinicians, allowing us to serve patients in an interdisciplinary environment,” said David Entwistle, Stanford Health Care President and CEO. “What I also love about this facility is that it was designed and co-created with our patients. From our collaborative workspaces to our patient rooms, we’ve created a care setting that is customized for seamless coordination, patient comfort, and convenience.”

The facility will expand SHC’s world-class Orthopedic clinical footprint and welcome two new integrated Centers of care. The Digestive Health Center will enable the colocation of gastroenterology, liver and surgery clinics with a nine-procedure endoscopy suite. The Pelvic Health Center will serve patients with urologic, gynecologic and general surgery needs in an interdisciplinary environment providing efficient and attentive care.

The building design is truly integrative. Specialists across different practices will be grouped together in the center of each clinic pod. The collaborative workspaces are designed to foster discussions and consults.

“The Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center captures the essence of the high-tech, high-touch concept that is so important to our Precision Health vision,” said Lloyd B. Minor, M.D., Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. “Stanford Medicine is excited to expand and improve upon our ability to deliver leading-edge health care throughout our community, making it more convenient for our patients to receive a broad range of health care services.”

The interior layout and finishes were designed around a team approach to patient care, making it easier for doctors to collaborate and for patients to have a smooth, seamless care experience. Patient-friendly innovations include spacious patient rooms with extra-wide exam chairs for added comfort; consultation rooms for telemedicine visits, patient education and private discussions; a health library; and private surgery prep rooms located just outside each of the procedure rooms. Beautiful artwork, curated from local artists line the halls of all three levels, complementing the building’s soothing interior design, access to natural daylight, and neutral color palette.

“Having a world-class facility like the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center in Redwood City makes health care more convenient and accessible to our residents,” said Ian Bain, Mayor of Redwood City. “This new medical building broadens the range of expertise and services available here, and throughout San Mateo County.” 

The new three-story, 90,000-square-foot facility is located at 420 Broadway Street in Redwood City, CA. The facility will complement a range of outpatient services already available in the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center, including: orthopedic surgery and sports medicine; dermatology; sleep medicine; and pain management.
