On Wednesday, Stanford Hospital & Clinics officially broke ground on a new 824,000-square-foot hospital at an event attended by 400 community members, donors, and administrators. As my colleague mentioned in an earlier Scope post, the new building "will feature amenities intended to enhance both physical and emotional healing with the latest in medical, surgical and diagnostic technology."
This photo of bright red shovels being dug into ceremonial dirt that afternoon distinctly captures this exciting new chapter in Stanford's history.
