Here's what the lobby entrance at the new Kaiser Permanente Medical Center is anticipated to look like.
Kaiser Permanente is remodeling 9,000-square-feet on the first floor of the building at 400 S. Sepulveda Blvd. in Manhattan Beach. The new medical facility is expected to open in November, offering adult primary care, pediatrics, obstetrics-gynecology, a nurse clinic, X-ray, pharmacy, and video appointments.
Additional services, including general surgery, podiatry, orthopedics, dermatology, and allergy, will be added next year.
“Our goal is always to make accessing care as convenient as possible,” said Lesley Wille, RN, executive director of the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center. “As our membership in the community continues to grow, this new medical office building will allow us to better serve patients and employers who call the Beach Cities home.”
The Manhattan Beach Medical Offices will join seven other Kaiser Permanente facilities serving the South Bay, including the nearby Torrance and Gardena medical offices. Kaiser Permanente South Bay provides care to more than 220,000 members in the South Bay, including more than 12,000 members residing in the Beach Cities.“With the Manhattan Beach Medical Offices, we have re-imagined the health care experience. Patients will enjoy a spa-like feel with amenities and modern technology to improve their health and wellness,” said Wille. “Our goal is to create a welcoming space that encourages members to proactively engage with the resources available to live their healthiest life. That could mean stopping in for a flu shot, or taking a health education class.”
Kaiser Permanente South Bay has provided comprehensive, affordable health care to the Long Beach, Harbor and South Bay communities for 65 years and serves more than 220,000 members. The South Bay Service Area includes the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center in Harbor City, and medical offices in Carson, Gardena, Lomita, Long Beach and Torrance.
