The answer is no.
This question was asked by an anonymous commenter on our earlier article, "Size of Menifee Square Miles"...
My comment is a question. Is there any plan that you know of for Kaiser Permanente building a medical center/hospital here in the Inland Empire?So I contacted a friend of mine, who happens to be a Kaiser physician, and he put me in touch with one of Kaiser's public affairs officers, Karen Roberts. Karen said that they don't have any plans to build a hospital here in Riverside County, but they do have plans to build some medical office buildings.
In 2009 they plan to open up a building in Redhawk, and in 2011 they plan to open one up in Murrieta by Rancho Springs.
Note that earlier this year, Kaiser made a bid to buy Moreno Valley Medical Center, but was denied. Now that Measure G failed, Select Healthcare is obligated to purchase Moreno Valley. It's possible Select may go foward with the purchase, and then sell it to Kaiser.
