San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente plans to open a health care clinic in San Francisco’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood, a booming area that’s becoming one of the city’s medical hotspots.

The Mental Health and Wellness Clinic — to occupy 42,000 square feet of the seven-floor building at 939 Ellis St. — will provide a variety of inpatient, outpatient, emergency, mental health and educational services, according to planning documents filed with the city.

The move comes just as California Pacific Medical Center is opening its $2 billion hospital on Van Ness Avenue and Geary Boulevard. In addition to the 700,000-square-foot hospital, a 250,000-square-foot medical office building being developed by San Diego-based PMB is opening across the street. Residential developers are also circling the area, with plans for a senior and other housing projects in the works.
