Kaiser celebrates 20 years on Castro Street

The downtown medical office was opened in 1991

Kaiser Permanente's Mountain View Medical Office is celebrating 20 years of medical service at its Castro Street location.

With 34 physicians and a staff of 150, the downtown facility, which opened in 1991, logs about 400 medical visits each day, or around 80,000 annually, according to a press release.

Laura Macias, a Mountain View councilwoman, is one of several people will speak in recognition of the milestone at a luncheon for current and retired Kaiser staff to be held on Wednesday, May 18.

The Mountain View Medical Office is a satellite unit of the Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center.

Can Kaiser reject coverage once COBRA expires due to preexisting condition(s)?

I don't have Kaiser Health coverage anymore, but when I did, the Mountain View location was the primary location we used for routine checkups, or when the kids got sick. It was very convenient to have pediatrics, optometry, a pharmacy, and general adult medicine so close by, and the parking was good too.

Kaiser Health coverage is very good, I wish I still had it, and its a boon for Mountain View to have this satellite campus, that isn't huge, but big enough to be full service for most things.
