After this expansion is all done, I hope the powers that be take away the parking charge. Imagine paying for parking at a hospital garage!!!

Stanford Hospital supports more than just Palo Alto.
In fact many people MV residents use Stanford Hosp resources, no?

...I forgot to ad that when I do have to go to the hospital, I go to Stanford Hospital. My health insurance allows me the opportunity to receive my medical treatment there.
So as I understand it, each patient will be in a private room. Years ago while at the hospital, I remember being in a 'ward'; a room with 8 people in it, recovering from surgery or ailment. But there were not 8 TV's in the room. But not very private or semi private is it---8 people to a room called a 'ward'.
