Silicon Valley companies join hospital partnership

Stanford Hospital & Clinics and six leading Silicon Valley technology companies have joined together to provide unprecedented philanthropic support for development of the new $2 billion adult hospital to be built at Stanford Medical Center.

Apple, eBay, HP, Intel, Intuit and Oracle are founding members of the Stanford Hospital Corporate Partners Program. Their contributions are projected to provide as much as $150 million over the next 10 years to help build the new hospital and create a global model for patient-centered, technologically advanced health care. SHC expects to raise $400 million or more in private donations to fund construction of the new facility.

“There is no better time to invest in the future of health care than now, and no better place than here at Stanford, in the heart of Silicon Valley. By joining with us at this moment, these companies have demonstrated great leadership that reflects their ongoing commitment to improve the quality of life on a global scale,” said Stanford University President John Hennessy.

The companies also will collaborate with SHC to develop innovative approaches to patient access, information, education and navigation at the new Stanford Hospital.

“Stanford has the ability to change the face of health care,” said Stanford Hospital President and CEO Amir Dan Rubin, who joined SHC in January. “To be part of a pioneering collaboration with our founding Corporate Partners that can have such a broad impact on humanity is unique and truly inspiring.”

“Our Corporate Partners recognize that Stanford is uniquely positioned to lead in translating the next wave of medical breakthroughs into care that will benefit patients everywhere,” said SHC Board Chair Mariann Byerwalter, “and that by investing here, they can impact health worldwide.”
