Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has announced plans to construct a 30-exam room medical office building in Honokohau. The project is expected to break ground by late 2012 and be complete by early 2014.

This new state-of-the-art facility will replace the existing Kaiser Permanente clinic in Kailua-Kona.

“We have a lot of members in the West Hawaii area,” Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Thomas Risse said. “This new facility will improve access for our current patients and provide capacity to serve additional people seeking top-quality health care with Kaiser Permanente.”

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii purchased the 9.9 acre Honokohau site in March 2009. It is located in the West Hawaii Business Park, mid-way between the town of Kailua-Kona and the airport on Queen Kaahumanu Highway.

The proposed 40,000 square foot clinic is expected to include 20 provider offices and 30 exam rooms to service the more than 22,000 Kaiser Permanente members on the Big Island.

Plans also call for a pharmacy, optical sales, general radiology, mammography, clinical lab blood draw stations, procedure rooms, physical therapy space and behavioral health services.
