San Diego County leaders and hospital staff gathered to celebrate Kaiser Permanente’s newest medical center with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday.
Kearny Mesa is the location of the Kaiser’s state-of-the-art medical center.
The 617,000 square feet hospital includes a 24-hour emergency department, 321 rooms for single-patient occupancy and brand new technology.
“All patients will benefit from a combination of our cutting edge care that includes innovative medical technologies, our integrated model of care and most importantly, personal service,” said Jane Finley, Kaiser Permanente’s San Diego vice president and area manager.
The new technology includes virtual guardrails, pain level monitoring and caregiver alerts to support round-the-clock care, according to a statement from Kaiser Permanente.
“It’s a very exciting day for us not just to celebrate the 50 years we’ve had in San Diego, but the 50 years of the future we’ll have in San Diego,” said Finley.
The hospital will be open to patients starting April 25.
