Kaiser Permanente West L.A. Awards $250,000 to Fund Innovative Community Agencies
Representatives from all corners of Los Angeles will participate in the grand opening dedication ceremony of Kaiser Permanente’s new West Los Angeles hospital tower, which pairs advanced technology with the ultimate healing environment.
While fulfilling the earthquake safety requirement standards established by Senate Bill 1953, Kaiser Permanente leveraged the opportunity to design and build a new state-of-the-art medical tower. The tower is the first of Kaiser Permanente’s 11 new or renovated facilities in Southern California. This represents a $4 billion investment in the future health of Kaiser Permanente members and the communities it serves. The Hospital Tower Grand Opening, Dedication Ceremony & Grantee Awards will be held Thursday, January 24, 5-7 p.m., at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles, Healing Garden, 6041 Cadillac Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90034.
Howard Fullman, MD, area medical director, L. A. City Councilman Herb Wesson, California State Senator Mark Ridley-Thomas, and grantees are scheduled to participate.
Highlights of the cutting-edge facility include:
Kaiser Permanente officials will also award more than $250,000 in grants to innovative community-based organizations that are making a difference in the health and wellness of communities throughout Los Angeles.
Visual highlights include new high-tech operating room tour for elected officials, grant recipients, and media.
