The new medical center is a 19,000-square-foot facility located at 815 East Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore and houses nine provider offices and 17 exam rooms. Clinical services will initially include Internal Medicine/Family Practice and OB/GYN, as well as Laboratory, Pharmacy and General Radiology. The center also offers Mammography to make the service more accessible for members.
“Kaiser Permanente is dedicated to increasing access to our excellent care in Baltimore City, and this new medical center helps us reach that goal,” says Kim Horn, president of Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States. “We are excited to make our integrated model and expanded services even more convenient for Baltimore residents at this new location.”
“Our award-winning physicians provide exceptional care every day throughout the region and we are delighted to offer more Baltimore residents the level of clinical quality that has placed us among the top plans in the nation,” said Bernadette Loftus, MD, associate executive director of Permanente Medical Group.
Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States is recognized nationally and regionally as one of the top health plans for excellence in patient care outcomes. In 2015, the plan was given the highest national rating — 5.0 out of 5.0 — for Private (commercial) and Medicare plans, by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). It was the only plan in the Mid-Atlantic region, and one of only two plans nationwide, to receive a score of 5.0 in both categories, placing the plan among the top 3 percent of all U.S. plans.
In addition, Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States was selected as the first integrated health care provider to become a health plan option for Maryland state employees, and was made available for employees this year.
