News Release: Kaiser Permanente Breaks Ground for New Medical Office Building in Hesperia


HESPERIA, CA, November 5, 2019 — Kaiser Permanente officials today broke ground for a new medical office building in Hesperia. Scheduled to open in 2021, the new 3-story, 54,000 square foot medical office building will provide convenient, affordable, high-quality health care to members in the High Desert.

This new facility is part of Kaiser Permanente’s next generation of medical office buildings. It will provide Kaiser Permanente members in the High Desert with expanded access to our health services, supported by the latest medical technology including telemedicine capabilities.

When complete, Kaiser Permanente’s Hesperia Medical Offices will have 30 provider offices.

Primary and specialty care services will include family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, OBGYN, cardiology, and physical therapy. It will also feature a pharmacy, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, nurse clinic, optometry and optical dispensing, and conference center.

The Hesperia Medical Offices will reflect Kaiser Permanente’s focus on members’ needs and serve as a health hub for members and the community. The space will feel open, warm and welcoming, and will serve as a local resource for healthy living.

“Members and patients are at the center of everything we do,” said Greg Christian, Senior Vice President, Area Manager. “We are committed to providing innovative care and convenient access to
health care for our members who live and work in the High Desert.”

“The Hesperia Medical Offices will meet Kaiser Permanente’s vision for the future,” said Dr. Timothy Jenkins, Area Medical Director. “Our evidence-based, integrated approach to health
innovation is designed to produce better outcomes and focuses on four key areas: empowered member experience, personalized care, care setting redesign, and community health.”
McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. is the construction company building the new facility.

Prior to breaking ground on the Kaiser Permanente Hesperia Medical Office Building project, McCarthy relocated 14 endangered Joshua Trees, so they would not be impacted by construction. As a
part of McCarthy’s Joshua Tree Relocation Plan to preserve this endangered species, the trees were pre-watered in advance of their removal and then moved to their new locations to help mitigate impacts to Joshua trees and other desert plants resulting from development within the city limits.

Three of those 14 trees are slated to be reused in the medical office building’s final landscaping, with a possibility for more to be moved and replanted along a Thrive walking path when the building is complete.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating on another project with Kaiser Permanente for this new health care facility and assisting the health care provider in offering world-class medical services to those in the Hesperia community,” said David Alford, Project Director of McCarthy Building Companies Inc. “We’re glad we could be a part of this important project that will provide convenient, affordable, high-quality health care to members in the High Desert.”

The new medical office building will be located at 9550 Escondido Avenue, west of the Walmart Supercenter in Hesperia.
