Kaiser opening new clinics in Watsonville, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley

Kaiser Permanente Northern California announced on Tuesday that new clinics will be built in Santa Cruz County before the end of 2017.

Kaiser Permanente plans to open three medical facilities in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley and Watsonville.

New clinics mean patients and employees won’t need to make the long, winding drive over the hill on Highway 17, said Kaiser Permanente Senior Vice President Irene Sanchez.

“Our customers have been asking us to provide our unique offering of high quality (healthcare) in Santa Cruz County for some time,” Sanchez said.
