For public safety, it may be necessary for PG&E to turn off electricity in certain locations for several days as a heightened fire risk is forecasted due to high winds and dry conditions. This is called a “Public Safety Power Shutoff” or “PSPS.”
Kaiser Permanente is committed to the health and safety of our members, patients, and employees. We have the contingency plans in place for planned and unplanned power disruptions. The utility companies will provide direct communications to us prior to, during and after a PSPS event.
All Kaiser Permanente hospitals will remain open during any PSPS as they have emergency generators. However, an outage may affect some outpatient medical offices and require rescheduling certain services in some areas.
At this time, we don’t expect any disruption in power to any of our greater Sacramento and Roseville Area facilities.
If you’ve fought cancer at any time in your life, or if you’re fighting it now, you’re a survivor!
Join us for our annual Greater Sacramento Cancer Survivors Day, an event where patients and their families are invited to celebrate those who have survived, gain inspiration from those recently diagnosed and enjoy support from family, friends, and caregivers.

Kaiser Permanente Announces Land Purchase Completed for New Medical Center in Downtown Sacramento Railyards
Kaiser Permanente announced it has completed the purchase of approximately 18 acres at the Sacramento Railyards in downtown Sacramento for a future medical center to serve the city center.
“We are excited to take this step forward in our expansion plans and to be a major part of the revitalization of downtown Sacramento where thousands of Kaiser Permanente members live and work. Our new medical center will ensure that Kaiser Permanente meets the future health care needs of our members and the communities we serve,” said Sandy Sharon, Senior Vice President and Area Manager, Kaiser Permanente Sacramento.
Kaiser Permanente purchased the land located north of Railyards Boulevard and west of 5th Street from Downtown Railyard Venture LLC, which owns the 240-acre Railyards. This is the third major investment the health care provider has made in downtown Sacramento. In 2016, it opened a Sports Medicine Center in Golden 1 Center where the Sacramento Kings players and Kaiser Permanente members are cared for with personalized evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation. Last June, Kaiser Permanente opened the Downtown Commons Medical Offices on J Street, bringing outstanding primary and specialty care to the heart of the city.
“Thousands of people who live and work downtown will be able to access health services that span the continuum of care just steps from their jobs and homes. Whether they need emergency care, a routine health checkup, or highly specialized care, Kaiser Permanente will be the only provider downtown to offer the care when and where they need it,” said Rob Azevedo, MD, Physician-in-Chief, Sacramento.
The announcement was made on January 22, 2019, to community and business leaders at the 21st annual State of Downtown breakfast held by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. Kaiser Permanente was a presenting sponsor of the event.
