Complimentary Attendant Assisted Parking

We are introducing a new program called Attendant Assisted Parking to help you find available parking spaces on the Fremont Medical Center campus if you can’t find one.

This free program is available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn how Attendant Assisted Parking works.

Dispose of Your Expired and Unused Drugs

Medicines help treat diseases, manage chronic conditions and improve health and well-being for millions of Americans. Over time, we tend to accumulate expired or unused drugs in our medicine cabinets.

Now you can properly dispose of your old and unwanted medication at a Medication Take Back bin located in one of our local pharmacies. You will also help to prevent contamination of our water supplies and harm to fish and wildlife.

Large, blue Medication Take Back bins are located inside of our Fremont-Ohlone and Union City pharmacies. Learn more about what items are accepted and items that are not allowed at these bins.

Here Comes the Sun: Solar Coming to San Leandro and Union City

Our San Leandro Medical Center and Union City Medical Offices will soon be even greener and more sustainable while supporting Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to the environment, our members and our communities.

The installation of onsite solar power generation has started on the San Leandro and Union City MOB campuses. This is part of the planned solar installations at over 100 Kaiser Permanente facilities across California within the next two years.

Solar photovoltaic arrays will be constructed and integrated over carports in the campus parking lots, providing welcome shade from the sun for parking spots used by members, visitors and employees.

As a result of the solar installations, some parking lots on the San Leandro and Union City MOB campuses will be temporarily closed to accommodate construction. To minimize disruption to our members, visitors and staff, these closures will be split into phases. For details of the temporary parking lot closures, please refer to the San Leandro parking map or Union City MOB parking map.
