Construction begins on new Riverside Medical Office Building

In order to provide the best care possible to our members and the community, Kaiser Permanente is building a brand-new, state-of-the-art medical office building to replace our current Riverside Medical Office Building.

When complete, the new 210,000-square-foot building will include nearly double the number of provider offices, a larger pharmacy, a larger laboratory, and expanded services including an on-site MRI suite.

Along with being a more efficient building in terms of the services provided, Kaiser Permanente is working to make the new facility a LEED Gold building. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and looks at several aspects of energy efficiency, water usage, greenhouse gases, and other items to determine the environmental footprint of the building. If successful, this would be Kaiser Permanente’s first LEED Gold building in the greater Sacramento Area.

Are you planning international travel?

To prepare for your trip, you will have a personal telephone consult with a nurse, specifically trained in travel medicine, to assess your travel health needs.  Your nurse will gather information, ask you questions, and make recommendations for your travel needs. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the decision-making. After the telephone consult, you may receive recommended immunizations and/ or have oral medications. You can typically come in the next day to receive your immunizations and pick up oral medication from our pharmacies. We serve adults over the age of 18.
