Besides being patient-friendly, with features such as handrails and wide corridors, the new center aims to harness the brainpower that is spread out among many departments within Stanford, said Alison Kerr, a vice-president of operations for Stanford Healthcare.

By putting doctors and departments together, treatment plans become less dependent on the staff to whom a patient happens to be referred, Kerr said.
"If you're all working in the same area you see someone and you can just grab them and say, 'I just saw this woman -- can you look at her films or come over and talk to her?'" Kerr said.
"Most department chairs in neurology and neurosurgery don't actually work together, but they work very well together here," she added. "Being able to partner with our university colleagues in creating a rich environment that translates into patient care is our sweet spot."
Stanford patients representing a range of neurological conditions helped to design the interior of the Neuroscience Health Center, Kerr said.
"Members of our Patient and Family Advisory Council chose every piece of tile, fabric and color," Kerr said. "On chair days we brought in all the chairs we were considering for them to try out. If you have a rod in your spine, that's really important.
"And as we were designing this space we knew it didn't make sense to put the Alzheimer's clinic on the first floor near a door where cars are driving because sometimes Alzheimer's patients get frightened and they bolt," Kerr added.
