Redwood City Hospital

US-based healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente has opened a new replacement hospital at its Redwood City Medical Center.

The launch represents the company’s third new hospital in Northern California (NC) this year.

The seven-storey, 280,000ft² structure located at the corner of Veterans Boulevard and Walnut Street is adjacent to the building it replaces and meets the state’s new seismic-safety standards that come into effect on 1 January 2015.

Kaiser’s new hospital features neuro-interventional radiology suites, neurological CT scans, neuro-interventional imaging suites and neurological and orthopedic operating rooms.

Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plan in Northern California group president and regional president Gregory Adams said: "Our new Redwood City hospital is the culmination of a $2bn commitment by Kaiser Permanente to our members and the communities we serve.

"The Redwood City hospital reflects our commitment to providing exceptional, patient-centered care to our members in modern, up-to-date facilities."

"We are an industry leader in delivering high-quality, affordable healthcare and, as the third new facility we have opened this year, the Redwood City hospital reflects our commitment to providing exceptional, patient-centered care to our members in modern, up-to-date facilities."

The facility features private rooms with room service, Wi-Fi and pull-out guest beds. Throughout the hospital, patient rooms feature an interactive electronic patient care board Get Well Network that is connected to a 42in plasma screen.

Once patients are released, they can view television programmes, movies and patient-education videos and can find the names of doctors and nurses, receive emails and read a care schedule that covers their hospital stay and follow-up care.

The hospital also features an electronic way-finding board in English and Spanish, helping members and visitors find people and destinations in the hospital.

Kaiser Permanente opened San Leandro in June and Oakland in July in addition to Redwood City.
