Kaiser Permanente chooses location for medical school

After revealing its intention to open a medical school, Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente has selected a site for the campus: Pasadena, Calif.

Located 10 miles northeast of Los Angeles, Pasadena is close to other major Kaiser Permanente facilities.

Pasadena's dynamic, innovative culture makes it an ideal place for the medical school, according to Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson. "Pasadena is a vibrant and diverse community, and that diversity is essential to the model of medical education we want to establish as we prepare physicians for the practice of medicine in the 21st century," Mr. Tyson said.

The school plans to break ground on the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine in 2017, and the first class of students is set to arrive in 2019.
