Expanding KP’s high-quality care to downtown

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.

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.
