El Camino Health (formerly El Camino Hospital) has gone through an incredible year of landmark growth, including the completion of the Taube Pavilion-Scrivner Center for Mental Health & Addiction Services. The flexibly configured, 56,000-square-foot, two-story building is light, airy, nurturing, and safe. The new building features private patient rooms, a specialty women’s unit on the first floor, nurses’ stations, inviting courtyards, and group spaces designed to facilitate conversation and engagement.
Silicon Valley philanthropists Tad and Dianne Taube made a gift to establish the Tad and Dianne Taube Program for Adolescent Behavioral Health. Tad shared, “We believe that El Camino Hospital is demonstrating its leadership in adolescent mental health treatment and prevention and in so doing has become an important collaborative partner for our philanthropy’s commitment to youngsters in the Bay Area and beyond,” Tad shares. “Dianne and I are grateful for the opportunity to support an incredible hospital like El Camino. We are extraordinarily proud of this beautiful new pavilion.”
The Taube Pavilion, which is centrally sited on El Camino Health’s Mountain View campus, will also be the location for the Scrivner Center’s adult inpatient and outpatient mental health and addiction programs. “These services address some of the most urgent and intractable problems facing our community and our nation,” notes Doug Scrivner, who with his wife, Mary, established the Mary and Doug Scrivner Endowment for Adolescent Mental Health Innovation. “Our gift is an expression of our confidence in El Camino and our faith in our young people and our hope for the future, and it is an investment in our community,” Mary adds.
The Taube Pavilion-Scrivner Center is set to open this month.
