A New “Center of Health”: Kaiser Permanente’s San Leandro Medical

First few Article Sentences

Alameda County residents are watching a 60-acre site near the freeway in San Leandro that’s busy with construction crews and equipment. Soon, they’ll have something to see: steel girders, the first visual evidence of the area’s new, six-story, 434,000 sf medical center, slated to open in 2014. Hollis Harris, vice president of capital projects for Kaiser Permanente, is responsible for implementing the company’s capital projects in Northern California. She says that the need to replace the Kaiser Hayward hospital arose due to SB 1953 (dictates seismic retrofitting or replacement for acute care hospitals). “Hayward fell into the replacement category,” she explains. “Given increase in membership over the years and the site size needed, we had to leave the city of Hayward to find adequate land.”
