Kaiser to open medical facility in South Los Angeles

Los Angeles Times, November 6, 2009

Kaiser Permanente unveiled plans for a $10-million medical office building that will offer primary care, some specialty care and other services to 80,000 South Los Angeles residents who are members of Kaiser's healthcare plan. Kaiser's 15,000-square-foot South Los Angeles medical offices are expected to open in 2011. A vacant building on the site will be torn down to make way for the new facility and construction is scheduled to begin soon. In recent years, a series of public and private hospitals across South Los Angeles have closed or been scaled back, compounding what civic leaders call South L.A.'s inadequate access to healthcare. About 80,000 of the 3.3 million Kaiser members in Southern California live in South L.A.
