Couple Pledges $27.5 Million to Stanford Hospital

A Silicon Valley couple is giving $27.5 million to Stanford Hospital and Clinics to double the size of its emergency department and give it access to new technology.

Marc Andreessen and Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen say they wanted
to give back in a way that would make a significant impact, which is why they chose the traditionally underfunded area of emergency care.

The hospital is planning to build a new emergency facility within Stanford Medical Center.

Hospital president Martha Marsh says having a state-of-the-art facility will make a difference.

Arrillaga-Andreessen is a faculty member at the Stanford University and its business school.

Andreessen is a software engineer and entrepreneur best known for developing Mosaic, an early version of a Web browser. He also co-founded Netscape Communications.
