In 2014, Stanford Medicine – one of the nation’s premiere healthcare systems – announced a new partnership with a community hospital in San Francisco’s East Bay area. By establishing a pediatric intensive care unit, or PICU, at John Muir Health’s Walnut Creek facility, hospital leaders said, they could provide Stanford-level care closer to home for local families with severely sick children. John Muir began trading on the Stanford name, while the Palo Alto juggernaut expanded its footprint in the Bay Area.

But a series of Chronicle investigations found that the marketing belied the reality at John Muir, where at least four children died under preventable circumstances after the creation of the PICU.
