Kaiser Permanente has presented details of a plan to build a hospital in the Sacramento Railyards, anchoring development in an area described by city officials as key to the revitalization of downtown Sacramento. This announcement, along with our purchase of a six-story, 195,000-square-foot building at 501 J Street for new medical offices, is a great way to mark a half-century of providing outstanding care to the region. Learn more about our exciting plans.
