The 10,000 square foot facility occupies an entire floor in the medical building and if successful Kaiser hopes to expand. They will offer primary care and pediatrics as the facility but also patients can do their blood tests (lab work) right there – no more trips to the basement, taking a number and waiting in line, as currently happens at the Kaiser facility on Cadillac in West LA. Also, the Santa Monica facility has a small pharmacy that enables patients to fill their prescriptions right on the same floor – very convenient – VERY patient centered. Dermatologists and podiatrists will also have regular office hours – two specialties that Kaiser records show are in demand for their patients in this area.
This is truly a glimpse into the future of medicine, where everything is focused on patint wellness. Congratulations Kaiser. You are leading the way.
