On November 15, 1996, the Stanford Board of Trustees and the University of California (UC) Board of Regents voted to merge their two academic medical centers; On November 1, 1997, the merger was made official. However, less than two years later, in October 1999, the merger came to an abrupt end. Was the merger a reckless “snake adventure” or a sensible response to the environmental and economic pressures of the time that were broken when it was implemented? Would the same evil have happened to Stanford and UCSF regardless of the merger?
