Kaiser Permanente to build IT campus in Georgia, create 900 jobs

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente is expanding its reach in Atlanta. The Georgia Department of Economic Development announced the health system plans to build a Kaiser Permanente IT campus in the capital city.

In total, the new 157,000-square-foot campus is expected to create approximately 900 IT jobs by 2019.

"We are delighted to bring a new IT campus to Georgia," said Julie Miller-Phipps, president of Kaiser Permanente Georgia. "The Atlanta area is a strong health technology hub with a high availability of tech talent, making it the ideal location for Kaiser Permanente's new IT campus. We're happy to be supporting Georgia's economy with a healthy dose of new high-tech jobs and to further demonstrate our commitment to improve the health and well being of the communities that we serve."

Kaiser Permanente has long been established in Georgia, as Kaiser Permanente Georgia is the state's largest nonprofit health plan, serving approximately 280,000 members, according to a news release.
