The 40,227m2 facility, known as the Kaiser Permanente San Marcos Medical Center, features a ‘comprehensive emergency department’ with 206 single patient rooms, eight operating rooms, and 39 private treatment areas.
Facilities will include units for intensive care, interventional radiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, urology, othopaedics, maternal-child health, neonatal intensive care, as well as a robot surgery programme.
The facility is the third medical centre in Kaiser Permanente’s San Diego service area, alongside its San Diego Medical Center and Zion Medical Center, as well as its 16th across the whole of southern California.
“With nearly one in five San Diegans entrusting their care to Kaiser Permanente, our new hospital allows us to continue to bring access to quality health care where, when, and how our patients want it,” said Michael Lalich, Area Medical Director and Chief of Staff for Kaiser Permanente in San Diego.
South of the border in Tijuana, Mexico, construction has now begun on a new general hospital, due to fully open in early 2024.
