A unique health system driven to innovate
As an academic medical center, we don't just deliver care, we develop it.
Specialized expertise, no matter your condition
“Stanford is a collection of persistent, great minds that never give up and never stop caring. They never forget that healthcare is personal.”
Access to tomorrow’s therapies through clinical trials
Personalized treatment and support for your precise needs
To make sure you receive precisely the cancer care you need, we developed the concept of tumor boards. These meetings, which are now a standard of cancer care, bring together experts from medical oncology, surgery, genetics and other fields to develop the best treatment plan for you. So, instead of relying on just a single opinion, we put multiple experts to work on your behalf.
We apply this collaborative approach to treatment planning across other clinics and specialties, so you get the most personalized treatment for your needs.
“From my critical, urgent need years ago to a more routine surgery this year, the genuine concern for the patient and family experience and quality of care at Stanford is awesome."
Care close to where you live and work
