State-of the art facility opening August 2019 at Mission Bay Medical Offices
Professional athletes to “weekend warriors” can depend on Kaiser Permanente Sports Medicine to provide the care they need to stay in the game.
Located at the Mission Bay Medical Offices, the 16,000 square foot Sports Medicine Center will be used to diagnose and treat injuries related to sports or recreational activities and athletics. The facility includes a 7,000 square foot open gym, onsite imaging, nine physical therapy rooms, and sport-specific rehabilitation with simulated environments.
Kaiser Permanente San Francisco’s healthy cooking program, the Thrive Kitchen, begins its third year of monthly hands-on cooking classes in 2019.
The ground-breaking program was developed by Linda Shiue, MD, an internal medicine physician and professionally trained chef who is also the Director of Culinary Medicine at the San Francisco Medical Center. Dr. Shiue recognized people’s need to reduce the amount of processed food and restaurant meals consumed, so she pioneered the Thrive Kitchen to equip fellow clinicians and patients with the skills to focus on home cooking.
