A new medical office building in San Rafael will bring Kaiser Permanente care under one roof in a convenient location when it opens July 27.
The 3-story, 145,000-square-foot San Rafael Park Medical Offices at 1650 Los Gamos Drive will accommodate several departments formerly housed at the Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center, which is about 2 miles south, said Julie Wycoff, project manager with Kaiser Permanente National Facilities Services Capital Projects.
The building has 72 provider offices and 120 exam rooms.
“We will have 2 adult and family medicine clinics, a pharmacy, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology, optometry, ophthalmology, our Vision Essentials eyeglasses department, a conference center, laboratory, imaging, and a café,” said Wycoff. “It’s turned out to be a beautiful, bright facility.”
The building was designed with the member experience at the forefront, said Naveen Kumar, MD, physician in chief at the Kaiser Permanente San Rafael Medical Center.
“It is so exciting to see a convenient, state-of-the-art building come to fruition in service to our members,” said Dr. Kumar. “It also matches the high-quality care that our team is known for every day.”
The location, near the intersection of U.S. Highway 101 and Lucas Valley Road, also has a parking garage with 668 parking spaces and row of electric car chargers, said Wycoff.
Inside the office there is abundant natural lighting thanks to a glass ceiling, and outside solar panels provide most of the electric needs for the building.
“Not only will San Rafael Park Medical Offices provide comprehensive primary care with onsite access to pharmacy, lab, and specialty services all under one roof, but the building, with its sustainable design elements, electric car charging stations, and bike racks, supports our carbon neutral status,” said Tarek Salaway, senior vice president and area manager of the Kaiser Permanente Marin-Sonoma service area.
