Kaiser Selects Pasadena Site for Groundbreaking Medical School
Groundbreaking is expected in 2017, and the school will welcome its first class of students in the fall of 2019.
The property, located at 94 S. Los Robles Ave., currently houses an unoccupied building, which will be torn down and replaced with a larger building, Kaiser spokesman Marc Brown said. A Kaiser office building and the Kaiser Permanente Department of Research and Evaluation are also on the same lot and will remain there, he said.
Scheduled to open in 2019, the school will take a nontraditional approach to medical education, Kaiser officials said.

Kaiser which recently said it plans to acquire the Group Health Cooperative system in Seattle, with 590,000 enrollees, currently has 10.2 million enrollees, roughly three quarters of them in California.
