On May 3, 2010, Kaiser Permanente received approval for certification of an Environmental Impact Report, rezoning, General Plan Amendment and Development Agreement for Phase 1 of the Kaiser Permanente San Leandro Medical Center/Mixed-Use Retail Development. Kaiser had been working with the City of San Leandro for several years to develop a 63-acre parcel of property, formerly the site of an Albertson’s distribution center, located off Marina Boulevard just west of Interstate 880.
Phase 1 of the Medical Center includes an approximately 436,000 square foot new hospital containing up to 264 licensed beds, and approximately 275,000 square foot Hospital Support Building immediately adjacent to and connected to the hospital, a central utility plant (CUP) containing all of the major mechanical and electrical equipment, and up to 2,100 surface parking spaces.
Kaiser Permanente Celebrates Construction Milestone of its New San Leandro Medical Center
The final steel beam in the superstructure of the new Kaiser Permanente San Leandro Medical Center was secured in place on July 8 during the “Topping Off” ceremony to mark this important milestone in the construction of the hospital. San Leandro city leaders, Kaiser Permanente physicians and employees, and invited guests signed the last steel beam during the special ceremony held at the site where the new hospital is being built, located just off the west side of Highway 880.
Construction of the new hospital began in 2010 and will generate 3,000 new construction jobs in San Leandro. The hospital is expected to open in 2014 and will replace the Kaiser Permanente Hayward Hospital. When complete, the six-story, state-of the art, 425,000-square-foot hospital will include 264 acute care beds – all private rooms – 10 operating rooms, 24-hour emergency services with 40 treatment rooms and a newborn intensive care nursery. A medical office building will house 116 offices for primary care and specialty physicians, an outpatient procedure suite with six rooms, a pharmacy, a laboratory and radiology services.
The new Kaiser Permanente San Leandro Medical Center will be a “green” facility, designed to use less energy and water. About 97 percent of all materials on the site was recycled, diverting 98,000 tons of construction waste material from the landfill. Old concrete paving will be reused for soil stabilization, fill and pavement base.
