The Stanford University Medical Center is located on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, California. San Francisco is to the north, and San Jose is to the south. Two main north-south freeways (Interstate 280 and US Highway 101) link us to San Francisco, San Jose and their airports.

From the Airports

From San Jose: take US-101 North (going toward San Francisco) and follow the directions below.

Directions from US 101

Take the University Avenue exit west (toward Palo Alto/Stanford). As you enter the gates to Stanford, University Avenue will change to Palm Drive. Continue on Palm Drive to Campus Drive. Turn Right on Campus Drive. Turn Left on Quarry Road into the parking structure.

Directions to the Administrative Offices of the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine

From Campus Drive

Walk towards the Emergency entrance. Take the elevators or stairs as you enter the building and come to the third floor. Turn left and come down the corridor. Go through two sets of double doors. You will see signs directing you to Pulmonary and Critical Care.

From the Front of the Hospital

Upon entering the front entrance of the hospital (where there are fountains), turn right at the corridor where the Gift Shop is located and take the escalator immediately past the Gift Shop to the third floor. Exit to your left. Turn right at the next corridor. Proceed through one set of double doors, and enter through the first door on your right. A sign overhead will direct you to Pulmonary and Critical Care. Walk down the corridor until you reach the Division.
