Great. Lot's of money for a fancy facility and I'll bet expensive surgery equipment. Still no reporting or transparency of patient outcome or medical errors.

>> Great. Lot's of money for a fancy facility and I'll bet expensive surgery equipment.

I'm kind of frustrated by the approach many hospitals are taking on this. You know the real reason that hospitals have been and are being replaced, rebuilt, and re-engineered throughout that state, right?

I guess this is one of those, "The truth? You can't handle the truth!" moments. Earthquakes. And I don't mean MLS. This has been very costly to the state's economy, and ultimately, patients and providers and all of us. But, it really did need to be done. I just wish the PR people could lay off all the gee-whiz-technology stuff. They could just as easily have installed whatever new MRI equipment etc in the old building. Thank goodness these seismic upgrades are happening.

However, although the driving force for this was the seismic upgrade, thank goodness Stanford did something about the ER situation in the process.
