Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital are not included in the boundary for Stanford University's STARS submission. They are separate corporations with separate boards of directors and the university does not have operational control over either entity. These organizations are not included in Stanford's annual greenhouse gas emissions inventory for the same reasons. The School of Medicine, which is a part of Stanford University, is included in this STARS submission (and the GHG inventory).
