Kaiser Opens New Hospital

The new Kaiser Permanente Anaheim Medical Center on East La Palma Avenue in Anaheim

With 453,000 members in Orange County, Kaiser Permanente is the largest health maintenance organization (HMO) in the county by far – and now Kaiser has a second brand new Orange County hospital to serve its membership. Four years after opening its $370 million, 150-bed hospital and medical building in Irvine, Kaiser has now opened a $425 million, 262-bed hospital in Anaheim.
The new six-floor Anaheim hospital includes 17 operating rooms, 36 emergency bays, 24 pediatric beds, and 20 neo-natal beds. The facility employs 2,000 people – 100 new personnel and the remainder coming from Kaiser’s former hospital in Anaheim, the old Canyon General Hospital on Lakeview Avenue.     
The entire 27-acre new medical campus on La Palma Avenue – including the land, the hospital, two medical buildings, and parking for 1,500 vehicles – cost $650 million.
