Kaiser’s five-story expansion opens in Santa Rosa
North Bay Business Journal

Kaiser Permanente Medical Center Santa Rosa’s new five-story expansion officially opened last Friday and will begin serving patients in nine days – on 10-10-10 – marking the completion of the seven-year, $233 million expansion that will accommodate an expected influx in patients.

While some health facilities are looking to decrease the number of beds and expand outpatient services, the new Kaiser wing does the opposite – the expansion will increase the number of beds to 173 from 117, double the number of beds in the emergency department from 17 to 34, while doubling intensive care unit beds from 10 to 20.
