Kaiser Oak­land hos­pi­tal reaches for the top

Modern Healthcare - - Construction Digest -

A top­ping-off cer­e­mony was held July 5 to com­mem­o­rate the place­ment of the fi­nal 1,200pound steel beam in the new 12-story, 349-bed Kaiser Per­ma­nente Oak­land (Calif.) Med­i­cal Cen­ter, sched­uled to open in 2014.

Kaiser would not dis­close the cost of the pro­ject, but the Cal­i­for­nia Of­fice of Statewide Health Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment pro­vided a fig­ure of $450 mil­lion.

The pro­ject in­cludes a med­i­cal of­fice build- ing, cancer cen­ter and park­ing garage that were com­pleted in 2009, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. Also planned for the site are a med­i­cal of­fice build­ing with 99 of­fices, six out­pa­tient op­er­at­ing rooms and seven out­pa­tient pro­ce­dure rooms.

The fi­nal steel beam is hoisted to the top of the skele­ton of the new 12-story Kaiser Per­ma­nente Oak­land Med­i­cal Cen­ter. The beam was signed by Kaiser staff.
