The Sacramento Bee is expanding its coverage of our health care community and its workers. Contact Canderson@sacbee.com with tips and complete our survey below.
Kaiser Permanente is planning an open house at its new medical offices in downtown Sacramento facility on June 2, two days ahead of when staff members at the facility start offering services such as primary care and pediatric office visits, women's health, oncology and prescriptions.
Kaiser is slowly expanding its presence in downtown, officially opening its 18,000-square-foot Sports Medicine Center in Golden 1 Center in October 2016. Kaiser members of all ages and ability can be diagnosed and treated there for injuries related to sports or recreational activities.
The health care giant also has signed on to build a medical center on 18 acres in the Sacramento railyard development, formally announcing in July 2015 that this facility will replace its Morse Avenue medical complex. Morse was built 50 years ago and would require rebuilding before 2030 to meet earthquake safety codes, the company said.
The public will be able to tour Kaiser's Downtown Commons Medical Offices, 501 J St., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and early birds will get the chance to meet Sacramento Kings player Frank Mason from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There is a parking garage on the site.
