The Californer/10271278

~ The Kaiser Permanente San José Medical Center has announced that the draft environmental impact report (DEIR) for their proposed project is now available for public review. The project, which has been assigned the State Clearinghouse Number SCH #2023050424 and File Numbers PDC23-006, PD23-002, and ER23-005, aims to demolish the existing 250,000-square foot hospital and construct a new 685,000-square foot hospital (including basement), a central utility plant, and a parking structure on their San José Medical Center campus.

According to the project description, the new hospital will be built while the existing one continues to function at full capacity. In addition to the hospital construction, future improvements to the campus will include demolishing two one-story medical offices and building a 250,000-square foot outpatient facility and a parking garage. The project also involves seeking a revised Planned Development zoning and permit.
