Life Flight

The Stanford Life Flight program began May 1, 1984. Stanford Life Flight flies in an EC 145 helicopter that can fly under both visual and instrument flight rules, allowing for response to calls in nearly any weather. The aircraft will accommodate two patients with two Flight Nurses, or one patient with up to four caregivers, plus the Pilot. During the non-flight time, the flight nurses are available to support the Emergency Department and the ICUs. Stanford Life Flight celebrates 30 years.

Data Breach

After a vendor’s electronic file that included certain Stanford Hospital & Clinics|Stanford Health Care patient information was discovered on a web site on August 22, 2011, it was removed the next day and SHC began an aggressive investigation.

A $20 million lawsuit was filed against Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Multi-Specialty Collection Services LLC, for the data breach that had the medical records of 20,000 patients on commercial website for a year. Stanford Hospitals & Clinics has severed all connections with this contractor and will “vigorously defend” itself.

Good Samaritan Hospital is an acute care hospital on Samaritan Drive in Los Gatos/San Jose, California. It contains centers for treatment of stroke and chest pain, as well as a large maternity ward. Originally a non-profit, it has been owned by HCA since 1996. The sale money was used to form a new nonprofit, The Health Trust.


The hospital was one of the first five hospitals in the United States to be certified by the Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center. It is affiliated with Stanford University and the National Institutes of Health in this endeavor.


A helipad was built in 2003.

Good Samaritan Health System also operated San Jose Medical Center and Gilroy’s South Valley Hospital at the time of the HCA acquisition. Catholic Healthcare West bought South Valley Hospital in 1999 and relocated Saint Louise Hospital in Morgan Hill to the Gilroy location. San Jose Medical Center (503-bed) was closed in 2004. HCA acquired the Alexian Brothers Hospital in San Jose in 1998, and renamed it Regional Medical Center of San Jose.

The hospital purchased the 99-bed Mission Oaks Hospital in Los Gatos to provide short-stay services and outpatient cancer treatment.
