On April 4, Kaiser Permanente will celebrate the grand opening of a new 176,000-square-foot administrative building in the New Carrollton Transit Center in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The state-of-the-art facility will be home to approximately 850 administrative employees, many of whom are members of KP’s information technology team, which is an important part of the organization’s growth in the region.
The facility offers easy Metro, MARC, and Amtrak train access, walkable surroundings, a modern fitness center, on-site dining options, a full conference center, and environmentally friendly design. Kaiser Permanente employees will benefit from a modern workspace that supports employee health, well-being, safety, innovation, collaboration, and productivity.
This week, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford, and Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks visited the new facility for a roundtable discussion on Opportunity Zones in Maryland. Governor Hogan announced an Opportunity Plan in January to help the state capitalize on federal funding for Opportunity Zones. Tuesday’s roundtable discussion was the culmination of several regional summits held by Lt. Governor Rutherford to share his findings. County Executive Alsobrooks shared how important this kind of funding is for community and economic development, especially for small businesses.
KP was represented by Jason Nietupski, Executive Director, National Facilities Services (NFS); Rame Hemstreet, Vice President, NFS Operations; and Laurie Kuiper, Senior Director, Government Relations. Our team shared appreciation for Governor Hogan’s leadership and reiterated our commitment to Prince George’s County and the state of Maryland.
