Kaiser Permanente Key Developments

Kaiser Permanente Plans A Major Expansion in the City of Atlanta

Kaiser Permanente plans a major expansion in the city of Atlanta that could create 900 high-paying jobs over the next five years.

Los Angeles Jury Orders Kaiser Permanente to Pay $28 Million to Anna Rahm

A Los Angeles jury awarded more than $28 million to a woman who said Kaiser Permanente doctors wrongly delayed an MRI that could have detected an aggressive cancerous tumor that caused her to lose her right leg. Attorneys for 23-year-old Anna Rahm of Chatsworth argued that a cancerous tumor in her pelvis grew during the three months she and her mother tried to persuade Kaiser doctors to authorize an MRI. By the time the test was finally approved, doctors were forced to amputate Rahm's right leg, half of her pelvis and part of her spine. The HMO was hammered by state regulators in February for failing to provide timely mental health treatment to its patients. It has previously paid a $4-million fine for similar violations. Kaiser mental health workers have also accused the company of failing to provide enough therapists, forcing some patients to endure lengthy and potentially dangerous waits for treatment. The Chatsworth girl was 17 years old in March 2009 when she visited a Kaiser office in Woodland Hills for treatment of severe lower back pain. She and her mother repeatedly asked for an MRI but instead were told she needed to lose weight. She was referred to a nutritionist and an acupuncture therapist. When Kaiser eventually ordered the MRI three months later, the test found a large, fast-growing cancerous tumor in her pelvis. In order to treat the cancer, Kaiser surgeons in July 2009 removed Rahm's right leg, half of her pelvis and part of her spine. Kaiser had argued that Rahm did not request the MRI in March 2009 and, even if she had, the tumor was already so large she still would have lost her leg. Jurors in Los Angeles County Superior Court agreed with the woman, and they awarded Rahm $28.2 million to cover her future medical expenses, loss of earnings and pain and suffering. Kaiser said it is considering its legal options.

Kaiser Permanente Considers Midtown for Major Expansion

Kaiser Permanente is considering Midtown for a major expansion in Atlanta. The company recently entered advanced discussions with Pershing Point owner California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) to lease up to 150,000 square feet in the project. In December, Atlanta Business Chronicle reported Kaiser Permanente was touring Midtown Atlanta office buildings that could house the unit, which could include a focus on health IT. Kaiser may have also recently toured buildings in other metro Atlanta office markets, including those in the city's northwest suburbs. It's unclear if other building owners still have a shot at landing the company to anchor one of their towers. Kaiser Permanente has been seeking five or six floors in the Atlanta buildings it toured. That much space could accommodate at least 1,000 employees.
