Kaiser Permanente to build new Oakland headquarters
Modern Healthcare

Kaiser Permanente plans to consolidate its Oakland, Calif., headquarters from seven locations into one to reduce overhead costs and provide what Chairman and CEO Bernard Tyson described as a “community benefit” to the city.

The health system announced Monday it will break ground on the new Kaiser Permanente Thrive Center in 2020, a 1.6 million-square-foot building that will accommodate its more than 7,000 national and Northern California regional administrative employees.

Tyson estimated the move should save more than $60 million per year in reduced operational costs from avoided maintenance on the old sites and lower utility expenses from the more energy efficient new center.
