Stanford Medicine in Emeryville

Stanford Health Care is now readily accessible to patients who work or live in the East Bay. A new outpatient facility, based in Emeryville, opened in March and now provides access to Stanford Medicine physicians and services in one convenient location.

The 90,000-square-foot multispecialty health center “brings many of the high-quality services of Stanford Health Care closer to where patients live and work in the East Bay, reducing the need to travel to Palo Alto for great care,” said Catherine Krna, vice president of ambulatory care.

Stanford Health Care, Emeryville is the only building in the East Bay SHC network where patients can get everything done conveniently, in a single visit. At the facility, patients can see a primary care physician or a specialist, have imaging or lab work completed, and undergo outpatient procedures.

“We are excited to welcome Stanford Health Care to Emeryville,” said Scott Donahue, mayor of Emeryville. “We value the care Stanford brings to our community and are proud to be home to this incredible hub of health care services for the East Bay.”

Stanford Health Care, Emeryville was designed with patient access and convenience in mind. Patients receive complimentary valet parking and can use one centralized check-in for all services. An electronic patient pass system lets patients move through their day more easily: They scan the pass at arrival stations to let clinicians know they are ready.

The building is also something of an art studio: Stanford Health Care partnered with the Emeryville Art in Public Places Program to showcase work from East Bay artists on all four levels of the facility.

The facility is designed around team-based patient care. Primary care physicians share clinic space with specialty practices, and specialists with complementary patient populations are grouped together in clinic pods — cardiology with pulmonology, and internal medicine with dermatology and ear, nose and throat, for example. In addition, through Stanford Health Care’s growing University HealthCare Alliance Network, Stanford Medicine doctors can work with local physicians.

“This wonderful new facility brings together multidisciplinary teams of Stanford clinicians and allows us to serve patients in one convenient location,” said David Entwistle, president and CEO of Stanford Health Care. “It also reflects our commitment to partner with community physicians in new ways and extend access to Stanford quality care and resources.”

Besides primary care, Stanford Health Care, Emeryville offers specialty care in cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, pain management, pulmonology, urology and vascular care. Patients can complete tests for neurology, cardiovascular and pulmonary function, and urodynamics, as well as imaging though nuclear medicine, three-dimensional mammography, ultrasound, CT, MR and X-ray.
