Taking you well into the future
Welcome to the Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Medical Center and Medical offices. Since 1952, we have been dedicated to being a healthy part of Redwood City and the Peninsula area. In 2014, we celebrated the opening of our new hospital, designed to meet stringent California seismic standards, and to support the highest quality health care.
The new 7-story, 300,000-square-foot hospital combines advanced architectural design with aesthetics, clinical and informational technology, and ample space to promote healing and effective care delivery.
Inside and out, the new Redwood City hospital offers amenities like natural light and open stairwells that invite staff and visitors to take the stairs. A central garden with outdoor dining space is adjacent to the cafeteria and lobby area. A water feature in the garden creates a tranquil separation between a quiet seating area and the busier pedestrian paths and outdoor dining area. The garden is planted with native and indigenous trees, as well as drought tolerant shrubs and perennials that change colors with the seasons. The building will begin a year-long process to earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards Silver rating.
Most of the hospital's 149 beds are private and feature pullout sofa beds for overnight family visits. All have access to an information network that goes beyond free wireless Internet service. The GetWell Network replaces traditional white boards in patients' rooms. This command center enables patients to interact with their nurses, contact friends and family via email, order food from the Dietary Department at any time, access the internet, watch movies on demand, play video games, and watch videos related to their care.
Other features include a 24 room Emergency Department, new Labor and Delivery area with private rooms, six state-of-the-art hybrid surgical suites, three Interventional Radiology suites, and free wifi throughout the hospital.

Redwood City, Gateway to the Bay
Founded in 1852 as a small port on San Francisco Bay, Redwood City took its name from the redwood lumber that was shipped from there to build Gold Rush-era San Francisco. Redwood City is located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Peninsulaâ”25 miles south of San Francisco and 25 miles north of San Jose. It offers convenient access to the entire Bay Area.
