On December 9th, 2017, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital of Stanford opened its doors to welcome its first patients. An estimated 500 staff members helped safely move 91 patients from the existing West Building into the new Main Building including, three CVICU patients on ECMO. Lucile Packard partnered with HTS and Health Care Relocation (HCR) to ensure a seamless move for both patients and staff. The HTS/HCR collaboration with LPCHS began in June 2017 with the creation of a solid patient move plan. After months of preparation, Lucile Packard completed the move in under five hours!
HTS would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication to the safe and efficient move of these incredible patients into their beautiful new space, and for the wonderful move communication extended to the patients’ families. The opening of Lucile Packard is truly an extraordinary event, one that ushers in a new era in pediatric care!
