The new Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Offices will open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday Oct. 3. Also at the ceremony, Kaiser Permanente Southern California Community Benefit will present the Antelope Valley Community Clinic with a $250,000 grant to expand its existing space and provide services for an additional 10,000 patients per year. The grant will also support additional Dental Clinic space.
The new Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Offices and the expansion of the Antelope Valley Community Clinic are part of Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to provide high-quality, convenient care for our members and the communities we serve.
I have been learning about Antelope Valley, and now it’s here. I hope to visit some day. Its opening is the perfect compliment to the discussion recently had about designing buildings for health (A bunch of doctors, an architect, and a bridge builder: Designing for Health | Ted Eytan, MD).
Before anyone says this is worshipping bricks and mortar, it isn’t – look at my companion presentation that shows how much of our medical care is shifting out of health care facilities and where our members are (Why a health system cares about the buildings it doesn’t build: Moderating AIA-DC Panel 10/8/14 | Ted Eytan, MD)
