Unfortunately, we are in the midst of a government shutdown. From top to bottom, it is affecting everyone in the country. It is a battle for the heart and soul of a nation’s healthcare system and, in a way, a nation’s health and mindset. Regardless of the outcome, we all must support our hospitals, doctors and healthcare workers.
John McNabb once said, “The best protection for public health is prevention, not cleanup.” Can we apply that same mentality to actual buildings, such as hospitals and medical centers? If so, then perhaps we can say that the best protection for public health is renovation and construction.
At Construction Protection Systems, we have proudly worked with many hospitals and medical centers all over the country. One such facility is the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Redwood City, CA.
The Redwood City Medical Center is a part of Kaiser Permanente, which is an integrated managed care consortium, a network of healthcare organizations under one umbrella. There are 36 other medical centers throughout the US. Founded by Henry J. Kaiser and Sidney Garfield in 1945, the consortium has been instrumental in providing affordable healthcare to millions of Americans for over 70 years!
