Kaiser Reopens Two Medical Offices After Santa Rosa Fire
For the first time since the firestorm broke out last week, about 200 Kaiser Permanente employees arrived for work Monday morning as the health care giant’s two main medical office buildings in Santa Rosa reopened next to its still shuttered hospital on Bicentennial Way. Just before the 9 a.m. opening, physicians, nurses, medical assistants and technicians were greeted by choral singers as they congregated in the lobby of Medical Office Building 1 in a reunion that was at once solemn, tearful and joyful. More than 100 Kaiser employees, including doctors and nurses, lost their homes in last week’s devastating Tubbs fire. Throughout the week Kaiser staff worked at other Kaiser locations in Rohnert Park and San Rafael and many worked at local evacuation centers throughout the county. (Espinoza, 10/16)
