As recently announced, Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States is moving forward with construction of a brand-new administrative facility in the New Carrollton Transit Center in Prince George’s County. This investment is a testament to the phenomenal work our employees are doing to expand our presence in this region. It is also part of a larger initiative to ensure our employees work in spaces that live up to our “total health” promise.
This new facility will open in 2018 with room for about 850 employees. The new state-of-the-art location will provide employees with an environment that truly lives up to Kaiser Permanente’s Thrive brand. Employees will benefit from easy Metro, MARC and Amtrak access; walkable surroundings; a modern fitness center; on-site dining options; a full conference center; and environmentally friendly design. Employees will also benefit from a state-of-art workspace that supports employee health, wellbeing, safety, innovation, collaboration and productivity. Additionally, we will be situated in the New Carrollton Transit Center, which will be a vibrant, mixed-use development that will include a wide range of retail and residential options as well as a community park.
A key consideration in selecting this location was accessibility. We have heard loud and clear that employees want easy Metro access. The New Carrollton building location is within walking distance of the New Carrollton Transit Center, which is a primary transit node for the Metropolitan Washington D.C. area. Employees will have easy access to Metro and MARC trains, as well as 25 different bus lines and Interstates 50 and 495.
