In the Spotlight
Longtime Kaiser Permanente Colorado members, Jing and Peter Kerchner, were looking forward to the birth of their twins. Thirty seven weeks and five days into her pregnancy, Jing realized something was wrong. Fortunately, she called her doctor and her care team sprang into action. What could have been “a very tragic day” had a very happy ending.
Many of us spend most of our time at work sitting in our spongy desk chairs, in front of our glowing computer screens, typing away and not getting any exercise. It’s bad for our health. In fact, a recent study showed that sitting for more than six hours each day is as bad for us as smoking.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado, the state’s largest nonprofit health plan, has chosen the location for a new medical office building, centrally located in Colorado Springs. The Parkside Medical Offices at 215 Parkside Drive will provide convenient access to primary care, laboratory, pharmacy and routine medical imaging services, all under one roof.
Colorado native Al Prado admits he has a stubborn side. But during a routine physical, his Kaiser Permanente physician convinced him to mail in his at-home Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) to screen for colon cancer.
Kaiser Permanente Colorado is expanding to enhance services in Southern Colorado. Parkside Medical Offices will open to Kaiser Permanente members in January of 2015. The new medical office will be located at 215 Parkside Drive and will provide convenient access to primary care, laboratory, pharmacy and routine medical imaging services, all under one roof.
