New Kaiser Permanente Hospital To be Built in Kearny Mesa
A new, 450-bed Kaiser Permanente Hospital is going to be built on 19 acres of land at 5201 Ruffin Road in Kearny Mesa. “Kaiser Permanente’s new central hospital will be a high-tech hospital of the future,” said Mary Ann Barnes, senior vice president and executive director for Kaiser Permanente San Diego. “From green design to the latest technology, it will have all the tools to provide our members with the highest quality care in a beautiful, healing and nurturing environment.”
The hospital grounds will include a 1,400-space parking structure, wrap around healing garden and gourmet cafeteria. Inside the seven-story building will be 321 patient rooms (in the first phase of construction), which will feature sophisticated technology in telehealth, digital way-finding, clinical informatics and communication. The hospital will be the first hospital in California to earn the LEED Gold Healthcare hospital certification.
