After Hours Food
As an additional service for our Residents and Fellows, the GME stocks the lounge with healthy snacks for after hours, meaning when the cafeteria and other food options are not available. This food is for Residents and Fellows only.
The GME gym is located on the 4th floor of the SHC. Equipment includes: stair-climbers, treadmills, bicycles and weights. Residents must use their access card to enter and exit the roof access door that leads to the gym. The code for the gym door can be found posted above the keypad used to access the gym.
GME Lounge HC433
The GME lounge is located on the 4th floor of the hospital, room HC433, next to the GME Office. The lounge is furnished with sofas, chairs, television, pool table, refrigerator and microwave.

Payments are made on the 2nd paycheck of each month.

Sleep quarters are provided for House Staff who are required to take call at Stanford Health Care/Stanford Children’s Health. Residents taking call from home should check with their residency Program Director regarding any response time requirements.
- All the call room doors will start the evening open. A closed door means it is unavailable.
- Do NOT reserve call rooms (no notes on doors, no putting your stuff in the room ahead of usage). Only go to the room when you intend to sleep.
* For those unable to keep their belongings in their own department ahead of time, lockers are provided adjacent to the call rooms. These are located on the 4th floor, directly across the hall from GME office entrance.
- If you get to the call rooms and cannot find an open door there is a sign-in board for you to put your name, time, and service so we can track how often rooms are unavailable. The board is located on the door to the break room in the main area of call rooms and by the door at the entrance to the east side call rooms. It is imperative that you document the lack of available rooms.
- Please remember there are 2 sets of call rooms
1. On BOTH sides of the hall beside the main GME office on the 4th floor (see map)
2. 4 additional call rooms on the east side of the hospital, 4th floor by pavilion G (see map)
Additional clean sheets are in the cupboard leading to gym (across the hall from the GME office)
Call rooms available on the 4th floor at both stairwells in red.
The sleep rooms are single occupancy and are designated as “hotel”. They are open to all Houses Staff needing to sleep. For assistance call the GME office at: (650) 723-5948, located on the 4th floor of Stanford Health Care in the “C” wing.
