Local health care, city, state and business leaders broke ground on a new state of the art medical office building in July that will provide care to more than 135,000 San Marcos residents. The three-story, 71,000-square-foot facility will house 34 specialty care providers, a four operating room ambulatory surgery center, nuclear medicine and a four-room gastroenterology procedure suite.
The $60 million project is part of Kaiser Permanente’s expansion plans to provide more access to care throughout San Diego County and will create nearly 200 new jobs in San Marcos, as well as 400 construction jobs. The new facility will be an extension to the current medical office building, which will also undergo a $4 million renovation. The future medical office building will be equipped with Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect, the largest civilian electronic health record in the nation. Construction is scheduled to be completed by August 2012.
