The Risk Authority Stanford was created from the hospital risk management department serving the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children’s Health. We proudly continue to provide service and solutions to these institutions while also expanding our reach to include health systems, health plans, medical groups and other healthcare and non-healthcare organizations outside of the Stanford family.



Vast in both its physical scale and its impact on human health — locally, nationally and globally — Stanford Medicine is comprises three main components:

    • Stanford School of Medicine, a premier research-intensive medical school that improves health through leadership and collaborative discoveries, and innovation in patient care, education and research.
    • Stanford Hospital and Clinics, consistently ranked among the top hospitals in the nation for advanced care in such areas as cancer treatment, cardiac care, neurology, orthopedic surgery, and organ transplantation.
    • Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, internationally recognized for advancing family-centered care of children and expectant mothers.

The Medical Center is uniquely advantaged by its location on the main Stanford University campus, adjacent to top-ranked programs in engineering, physical and biological sciences, computer science, ethics and other disciplines. This close proximity — coupled with Stanford’s long tradition of encouraging collaboration — fosters multidisciplinary research and, ultimately, accelerates the pace at which new knowledge can be translated into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease.
