Tribute to Lucile Salter Packard, founder of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, Adorns Lobby Wall



A tribute to Lucile Salter Packard adorns the wall in the Main Lobby expansion of the new hospital which bears the founder's name. The carved and etched crystal glass created by Christina Amri not only showcases Lucile as both a young woman and a visionary, but also a hardworking philanthropist who gave to our children, and to many communities and, thus, to the world. 

Inscribed on the LED-illuminated glass are the following words:

"Lucile Packard never hesitated to take on a project that she believed in...no matter how big or how daunting. A visionary who was willing to pitch in and do the work, Lucile and her husband, David, contributed to and encouraged the Foundation to support innumerable programs to benefit children and this community. This hospital is but one of those many efforts.

Lucile lives on in everyone she touched. She continued to show us how to lead a productive, gracious, and caring life.

We are enriched and enlivened by her legacy."

The children depicted in the photo are her great-grandchildren as well as patients. The new Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford will be opening this month.
