Los Angeles Business Journal

In a surprise move, Kaiser Permanente says it plans to open its own “national school of medicine” in 2019. The planned Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine is part of the Oakland-based health care giant’s efforts to take the lead in meeting 21st century health care needs nationwide, officials said early Thursday morning. Details are scarce, but Kaiser said it will move in coming months to “establish the legal entity and organizational structure” for the new school, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019 at an undisclosed location in Southern California.
