San Francisco Chronicle

A new 248-bed hospital is now open in Vallejo that officials say is built to the latest earthquake standards and features state-of-the-art electronic medical record keeping.

Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center opened to patients Tuesday after two postponements. Kaiser spokeswoman Joanie Erickson says the hospital is in line with seismic safety laws passed after the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
