Six of Silicon Valley's leading companies - Apple, eBay, HP, Intel, Intuit and Oracle - are now part of the Stanford Hospital Corporate Partners Program. The program, which was announced today, is projected to provide $150 million to build a new Stanford Hospital and create a model for patient-centered, technologically advanced health care.

Ron Johnson, senior vice president of retail at Apple and a member of the hospital board, sums up the program in a video:

One of the hallmarks to Silicon Valley is how companies work together to bring all of these incoming technologies together to create products or things that truly change people’s lives The whole idea behind the Stanford Hospital Corporate Partners Program is to unite the pioneer companies of the Silicon Valley with the new Stanford Hospital to create methods of taking care of patients that really haven’t been imagined yet.
