Kaiser Permanente plans to open $200M Mission Bay medical office building in March

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente is scheduled to open its 220,000-square-foot medical office building in Mission Bay in San Diego March 8. The new nine-story complex is estimated to cost $200 million or more, though health system officials have no disclosed or confirmed an exact amount, according to the San Francisco Business Times.

The new building will house medical offices for 106 physicians and employ a total workforce of about 500 physicians, nurses, other clinician, technicians and administrative workers, according to the report.

It aims to improve access to healthcare services for approximately 79,000 Kaiser members who previously had to travel a longer distance to Kaiser's San Francisco Medical Center, and is part of a broader effort by the city of San Francisco to decentralize the city's healthcare infrastructure, according to the report.

The new Mission Bay medical center will offer primary care and specialty care services, including pediatrics, internal and family medicine, occupational health, optometry and a minor injury center. Some services, including dermatology, orthopedics, podiatry, physical rehab, physical therapy and sports medicine, will require referrals, according to the report. The medical center will also feature a pharmacy, labs, eye exams, health education, imaging and cosmetic services.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the new facility on Feb. 26.
