Kaiser Permanente Key Developments

Kaiser Permanente Opens New Medical Office in Kona

Kaiser Permanente has opened a new medical office in Kona. The new medical office, 40,000-square-foot facility in north Kona offers a full-service pharmacy and vision center, the latest in diagnostic imaging with digital mammography and digital general radiology, convenient lab services, pediatrics, family medicine and 25 other specialties. The three-building campus is situated on a nine-acre lot at 74-517 Honokohau Street.

Kaiser Permanente Opens New Showcase Hospital in Oakland

Kaiser Permanente opened a sparkling new medical center in central Oakland, the headquarters city where the nation's non-profit, integrated health-care system was founded nearly 70 years ago. The new hospital has all private rooms with room service, Wi-Fi and pull-out guest beds so relatives can stay close to loved ones hospitalized overnight. It contains a 24-hour Emergency Department with 52 private treatment bays, eight labor and delivery rooms and 14 inpatient operating rooms. It joins a specialty medical office building next door that opened Jan. 6. That facility has 102 provider offices, six outpatient operating rooms, seven outpatient procedure rooms, a new parking garage, a laboratory and a pharmacy. Five other medical office buildings nearby complete the medical center campus. Children's Hospital within the Hospital: With its completion, the Oakland Medical Center solidifies and expands its role as a regional hub for pediatric inpatient and surgical care, and contains a full-service 'children's hospital within a general hospital'. The pediatric unit will serve children from throughout Kaiser Permanente's Northern California region. The unit has all the pediatric sub-specialty services that any children's hospital provides, as well as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and gathering areas specially designed for children. Oakland Medical Center is the first in Northern California to have an intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging system, an advanced imaging technology that world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeons at the hospital will use during brain surgery. Throughout the hospital, patient rooms feature the 'Get Well Network,' an interactive electronic patient care board connected to a 42-inch plasma screen. Patients can view television programs and patient-education videos, find the names of doctors and nurses, and read a care schedule. They can also order room-service meals using the small bedside keyboard. On the first floor entrances and in each elevator lobby, an electronic 'way-finding' board helps members and visitors find people and destinations in the hospital, in English, Spanish and Chinese. The Oakland Medical Center is the second of three Kaiser Permanente hospitals that are opening this year in the San Francisco Bay Area. The new San Leandro Medical Center opened June 3, and the Redwood City Medical Center will open in December. Together, the three hospitals represent a more than $2 billion investment to expand access to health care in the Northern California region.
