Kaiser Permanente Orange County’s Anaheim Medical Center in California, US, has opened a new hospital, replacing the current Kaiser Permanente Lakeview Hospital, which opened in 1979.

"Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is an integrated managed care consortium and is based in Oakland, California, US."

Located on La Palma Avenue, Anaheim, the new medical centre consists of 262 beds, 20 neonatal intensive care unit beds and 262 private rooms.

The hospital also includes 36 emergency department treatment bays, ten operating rooms and ten labour and delivery rooms, a helistop for transporting trauma patients, and a parking structure.

Julie Miller-Phipps, Kaiser Permanente Orange County senior vice president and executive director, said the new Anaheim Medical Center campus has been created as a ‘Sanctuary of Healing’, providing the very best in healthcare services.

"It is our gift to our 455,000 Kaiser Permanente Orange County members and the communities we serve," Miller-Phipps added.

The new medical centre campus provides a full range of specialty services, such as cardiology, neurosurgery, nephrology, urology, adult and pediatric oncology, infectious diseases and genetics.

The Anaheim Medical Center features Kaiser Permanente’s HealthConnect system, which will allow healthcare providers to retrieve essential medical information at nursing stations.

The new medical centre campus, which also includes Kraemer Medical Office Buildings 1 and 2, also features energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems, to improve patient experience.
