About R3

A group of Stanford Medicine experts began gathering in the spring of 2020 to develop a framework — known as Recover, Restore and Re-open (R3) — that can be built upon and used to inform how different communities and organizations, with diverse operational realities, approach recovery in the wake of the pandemic.

R3 is brought to life through a series of perspective pieces from subject matter experts, links to relevant research and articles, and profiles of Stanford Medicine experts within 12 topic areas related to: Contain and Control COVID-19Safeguard and Support Your Community, and Adapt and Thrive in the “New Normal.”


Crisis leadership requires resilience, adaptability

Responding to the pandemic — again and again and again

Throughout the pandemic, Stanford Medicine leaders have created processes to allow swift decision-making while reinforcing the importance of accountability and transparency. These collective efforts, combined with clear and continuous communication, engendered trust among the Stanford Medicine community and the many people who rely on its expertise.
