Susan Gray, project director passed away surrounded by family on August 2, 2018.
Susan started her health care career as an x-ray technologist, caring for patients on a daily basis. As the Director of Radiology Services at Children’s Hospital at Stanford, she was instrumental in creating the expanded imaging services for the new Lucile Salter Packard Children’s Hospital. In recent years, Susan took on the challenge of improving the aesthetics of the hospital environment by acquiring art that would aid in the children’s healing process. She helped pioneer technologies that continue to allow young patients to share in the wonders of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Susan was instrumental in bringing joy to patients, family and friends through the art program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and Stanford Children’s Health Specialty clinics. Susan helped organized hospital-wide employee events and she played a role in supporting the opening of the main hospital. When Susan entered a room everyone knew her name. Her spirit, quick wit, strong will and love for life was felt by everyone she touched. Susan’s greatest joy was her three children and she spoke frequently about how proud she was of their accomplishments. Susan will be missed by all of us.
