My brother had a swollen gland and none of the peninsula hospitals knew what it was. We were recommended to Lucille Packard Children's Hospital and not only did he receive the best care possible, they also found out what was wrong with him. The atmosphere is so family friendly and takes the scare out of visiting the hospital. They have toys, books, and other comfortable things for your childen in every room, office, and corridor. This hospital is huge and God bless the people who work here. It's a really great place.
