San Jose is the largest city in the United States
without a

children's hospital.
VMC provides primary care to approximately
40,000 low-income kids
VMC operates the only stand-alone
Pediatric ICU
in San Jose.
VMC is one of the largest birthing centers in California, with nearly
5,000 babies
born annually.
The Neonatal ICU provides care for more than
500 prematurely born & severely ill babies
each year.
Natural light, inviting spaces, access to outside areas and warm colors
are key components.
For a children's hospital,
it needs a touch of magic.

This project will impact the lives of
tens of thousands of children

This project will
nourish the spirit
of the entire family.

VMC provides
state of the art medical care with excellent outcomes
... and that excellence should be
visible through beauty.
The building requires
significant upgrades.
Research shows that art and play experiences can
reduce stress and improve patient outcomes.
