We are excited to announce that residents of Santa Cruz County will soon have access to Kaiser Permanente. Kaiser intends to enter the Santa Cruz commercial market in January of 2017. They plan to open three medical office buildings located at Crossroads Center in Watsonville, downtown Santa Cruz and the Granite Creek Business Center in Scotts Valley.
All three medical office buildings will provide primary care and the Watsonville and Scotts Valley facilities will also feature some specialty services. In addition, all three facilities will offer technology that will facilitate telemedicine visits. The offices in Watsonville and Scotts Valley will also feature laboratory, pharmacy and radiology services.
Santa Cruz members will have access to the full range of health care benefits Kaiser Permanente is known for. Local hospital services and inpatient care will be provided by Watsonville Community Hospital as well as at nearby Kaiser medical centers in Santa Clara and San Jose.
PBG has worked very closely with Kaiser during this expansion process. We look forward to supporting our clients in Santa Cruz County as well as our clients in the Silicon Valley who have employees that live in Santa Cruz County in exploring this option when pricing becomes available.
