Sacramento officials pushing Kaiser for a new hospital at Sleep Train Arena site
Sacramento Bee

Sacramento city officials are applying a full-court press on Kaiser Permanente to construct a new hospital at the 184-acre Sleep Train Arena site after a new arena is built downtown. Council members Angelique Ashby and Steve Cohn both made public overtures to the medical giant at Monday’s State of Natomas event. Ashby, who sat next to Kaiser’s chief Sacramento-area physician during the luncheon, has been the most vocal city official seeking to replace the arena with a new hospital when the Kings move into a planned downtown arena in 2016.
