New Kaiser Permanente Clinic to Open at Pearlridge Center | Business
Kaiser Permanente Hawaii today announced it has finalized plans for a new clinic fronting Moanalua Road in Pearlridge Center, further expanding access to quality health care.
Construction of the 12,000-square-foot Pearlridge Clinic is underway with completion scheduled for late 2013. The new clinic will provide family medicine and pediatric care as well as behavioral health, lab and pharmacy services.
“Our members love the convenience of seeing their doctor, completing lab work and filling a prescription all under one roof,” said Janet Liang, President of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. “This new Pearlridge Clinic, along with our expansion in Kona and Kaneohe, improves access for our current members and positions us well for future growth.”
The state’s largest integrated health care organization recently celebrated groundbreaking of a new state-of-the-art 40,000-square-foot clinic in Honokōhau, North Kona, expected to be complete by early 2014, and the renovation and expansion of its Koolau Clinic in Kaneohe, due for completion in late 2013.
"We're always excited to bring quality care closer to where people live and work," said Geoffrey Sewell, MD, President and Executive Medical Director Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. "With the addition of our new Pearlridge Clinic our patients can receive excellent care at any one of our 11 clinics on Oahu, all connected by the state's most advanced electronic health record system."
