-stcox- has already some multilevel models built-in in 
the form of the -shared()- option. To estimate such a 
model you can type:

xi: stcox  i.randomgroup, shared(clinic)

There is a good discussion of this option in:
Mario Cleves, William Gould, Roberto Gutierrez, and 
Yulia Marchenko (2008) "An Introduction to Survival 
Analysis using Stata". College Station: Stata Press.

Hope this helps,
