San Rafael, Calif., July 28, 2021 – The opening of the new San Rafael Park Medical Offices offers Kaiser Permanente members a new site for care. The new building opened July 27th. The three-story, 145,000-square-foot building is located at 1650 Los Gamos Drive. It will accommodate several departments formerly housed at the Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center.
The new facility will have adult and family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology, physical and occupational therapy, health education, optometry, ophthalmology, eyeglass services, eye surgical suite, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, and conference services at the site.
“The building has 72 provider offices and 120 exam rooms. It has many carbon neutral features and the offices have abundant natural lighting and energy-efficient fixtures. Outside solar panels provide most of the electric needs for the facility. With its sustainable design and carbon neutral elements, electric car charging stations, and bike racks, it supports Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to the environment and a healthy community,” said Tarek Salaway, senior vice president and area manager of the Kaiser Permanente Marin-Sonoma service area.
“Our new offices were created with our community in mind,” said Pat Kendall, medical group administrator at Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center. “The original glass ceiling in the building was preserved in the style of Marin County’s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed civic center. Warm light shines throughout the center atrium to the bottom floor, creating a refreshing, modern and comfortable healing space.”
“It’s turned out to be a beautiful, bright facility,” said Naveen Kumar, MD, physician in chief at Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center. “It is so exciting to see this medical office building come to fruition in service to our members. It also matches the high-quality care that our team is known for every day.”
The medical offices will provide members with the same quality care in a more spacious and healing environment. Members can still choose to access appointments virtually through phone and video visits, all of which are fully integrated with the care Kaiser Permanente provides.
