Kaiser and city trumpet railyard medical center, but details are few
Sacramento Business Journal

Kaiser Permanente put a flag in the ground for its future development of a medical center in the railyard Wednesday. But officials with the nonprofit medical giant also said there’s not a lot more to share yet.

“We’ve just gotten the land acquired,” said Ron Groepper, senior vice president/area manager for Kaiser’s Sacramento Medical Center. “We have no renderings or concepts even yet.”

Speaking after a formal announcement near the 18-acre northwestern railyard site for the medical center, Groepper did provide some other details. Both the center and new Kaiser medical offices a few blocks south in downtown Sacramento will focus on clinic and outpatient procedures, he said, following the trend in medical care. And Kaiser also will hold onto land it owns in Natomas near the Promenade development for building a medical office, he said.
