Now Open - New Location for Mental Health Care in San Mateo

To provide you with more convenient mental health and wellness care, our new San Mateo location is now open. The new location offers a wide range of mental health and wellness services, including adult, child, and family services.

As part of our expansion, your mental health provider may be have moved to the new location. If so, you received a personal letter in the mail. Your mental health provider looks forward to continuing your care at the new location. However, if you prefer to receive care at our Redwood City location, you can choose a mental health provider there.

This new location is 2.2 miles from our San Mateo Medical Offices and 9.8 miles from our Redwood City Medical Center. It is also located near public transportation just off El Camino Real. On-site parking will be available at no cost.  For department information, hours, and how to make an appointment, go to Mental Health and Wellness.

The road to our main hospital entrance has changed to only allow one-way traffic

To reach the main entrance of the hospital by vehicle (for drop off or pick up), enter from Maple Street, follow the road one-way into the round hospital driveway and then exit via Marshall Court which continues as a one-way street.

Patient stories about stroke

Treating complex cases of stroke

Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Hospital has been named a Comprehensive Stroke Center and are among the first in the nation to achiever this certification from the The Joint Commission, The American Heart Association and the American Stoke Association. A patient, Sonia Bains, shares her story of how she started having seizures and losing coordination about two weeks after giving birth which led to a complex stroke. She credits her treatment and care at the Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Comprehensive Stroke Center for saving her life. See the photos and read the article.

When Minutes Matter, Kaiser Permanente Excels

Every Kaiser Permanente Northern California medical center participates in a unique protocol called Stroke Express that enables physicians to rapidly diagnose strokes and administer medications quickly.  Like many people his age, Robert Taunton, 27, enjoys an active lifestyle. When he is not working as a project manager for a Richmond general contractor, he enjoys dirt biking, jet skiing, and tinkering with cars at his El Sobrante home.

But Taunton is anything but typical. Four months ago he had a stroke.
