Kaiser makes healthy investment in brand-new Oakland facility
San Francisco Chronicle

Kaiser’s old Oakland Medical Center and its new, 12-story hospital have the same number of patient beds – 349 – but little else in common.

Inside the nearly 60-year-old hospital, a hodgepodge of six buildings at the corner of Broadway and MacArthur Boulevard, most patients had to share rooms with one or even two other patients. In the new hospital across the street at 3600 Broadway, every patient will have a private room with room service, free Wi-Fi and a pull-out guest bed.
