California city anticipates 1,200 jobs spurred by Kaiser, Adventist and Sutter expansions

The city of Roseville, Calif., anticipates a job boom as healthcare giants Kaiser Permanente, Adventist Health and Sutter Health expand in the area, reports The Sacramento Bee.

The area is expected to see about 1,200 more jobs over several years resulting from the projects.

"We are expecting a significant, 11 percent job growth over the next five years, and these expansions play into that," Laura Matteoli, the city's acting economic development director, told the publication.

Roseville, Calif.-based Adventist Health's plans involve consolidation. According to the report, the system will consolidate its corporate headquarters and other buildings into one 275,000-square-foot building, projected to cost $100 million and slated to open in January. Human resources, IT and strategy departments will be housed in the building. Adventist Health also is building a clinic for its workers in Roseville, vice president of talent strategy Doris Tetz Carpenter told The Sacramento Bee.

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente's plans in Roseville involve replacing its 90,000-square-foot Riverside Medical Offices with one 210,000-square-foot building that will offer outpatient services, spokesperson Edwin Garcia said.

At Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health, hospital officials are expanding the system's Roseville hospital's emergency and intensive care unit, the report states. The 97,000-square-foot building addition is slated for completion in 2020.
