Health Matters—Stanford Medicine’s free annual community event—showcases world-renowned physicians and health care experts presenting the latest medical innovations and giving practical tips on healthy living.

This year, we’re dedicating Health Matters to the opening of the New Stanford Hospital—a beautifully designed space built to deliver compassionate, coordinated, leading-edge care, tailored to the unique needs of every patient. This seven-floor, 823,000 square foot state-of-the-art hospital will capture the promises of the biomedical revolution, translating the innovations of Stanford University and Silicon Valley into better health outcomes for our community and the world.

In addition to an array of tours, talks, and family activities to introduce the new hospital, we’ll also be featuring interactive displays and presentations from Stanford Medicine’s finest scientists and clinicians.

Mark your calendar for opening events on September 14 and 15, 2019. Check back here for the latest, up-to-date information about opening activities and to register for hospital tours. Visit for the latest, up-to-date information about opening activities and to register for hospital tours.
