A new surgery center will be the first phase of the construction. But over the next decade, the plan calls for the region’s second largest hospital and 1,800 new jobs. Kaiser has 68,000 member in the vicinity now, and that’s expected to grow to 85,000 in the next 5 years. The 50-acre medical campus will be adjacent to the upcoming Palladio regional mall that Elliott Homes is beginning to develop. The full Kaiser hospital won’t open until 2015, when it will offer the services of 1,300 doctors and staff.
