Kaiser Permanente Celebrates Grand Opening of Loveland Medical Office with VIP Open House
LOVELAND, Colo. — Kaiser Permanente Colorado, the state’s largest nonprofit health plan, celebrated the grand opening of its Loveland medical office and expansion into Northern Colorado with a VIP open house with the Loveland Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 13. More than 50 chamber members and regional business leaders received personal tours of the medical office, met with Kaiser Permanente physicians, staff and leaders, and participated in a commemorative ribbon-cutting ceremony at the event.
Kaiser Permanente’s Loveland medical office is the health plan’s 26th medical office to open in Colorado. The 30,000-square-foot facility is located at 4901 Thompson Parkway and offers primary care (family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics), laboratory, pharmacy and routine radiology services. Approximately 20 health care professionals are employed at the office, including four physicians. The Loveland medical office is conveniently located right off Interstate 25 and offers many same-day appointments for Kaiser Permanente patients, as well as Saturday pharmacy hours.
“This open house is a positive stamp on Kaiser Permanente’s initial footprint in Northern Colorado,” said Donna Lynne, DrPH, president, Kaiser Permanente Colorado. “We are thrilled to be open for business in Fort Collins and Loveland and look forward to this vibrant, growing community experiencing the high-quality, affordable health care Kaiser Permanente has to offer.”
More than 6,000 Kaiser Permanente members currently live in Northern Colorado. In addition to the Loveland medical office, Kaiser Permanente’s Northern Colorado expansion includes a newly opened medical office in Fort Collins, plans to open a medical office in Greeley in 2014 and a partnership agreement with Banner Health hospitals and physicians. Northern Colorado members may select primary and specialty care physicians from a preferred network of more than 400 community providers and receive hospital care at McKee Medical Center in Loveland or North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley. Kaiser Permanente’s partnership with Banner Health will allow for the sharing and utilization of health information technology to better coordinate patient care. The health plan’s Northern Colorado expansion is expected to bring approximately 100 jobs to the region.
