Stanford Hospitals & Clinics announced plans last week to build a new outpatient cancer center in San Jose. The center, which will be completed in 2014, will be Stanford healthcare system’s most comprehensive facility outpatient center other than of Palo Alto’s Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Redwood City’s Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center, according to a release from the Stanford Hospital.
With a new, 823,000-square-foot Stanford Hospital, which will be partially funded by a recently announced $1 billion fundraising campaign, Stanford Medicine aims to connect “science and humanity in a caring and dignified manner,” according to School of Medicine Dean Philip Pizzo.
Radiology professor Sanjiv Gambhir will be the new chair of the School of Medicine’s department of radiology.
Stanford Hospital will increase its payment of community benefits to the city of Palo Alto in order to offset the impact of its proposed expansion, it announced last Wednesday.
Amir Dan Rubin is set to become president and chief executive of Stanford Hospital & Clinics on Jan. 3, the hospital board of directors announced on Friday.
