The multiple construction projects are aimed at improving the appearance, accessibility and operations of the facilities, said Paul Tylar, Fresno team manager for National Facilities Services, Capital Projects Group at Kaiser Permanente, in a release.

“We want everyone who steps into our facilities to know that Kaiser Permanente is a place that nurtures the mind, body and spirit,” Tylar said.

Construction is already underway at the Kaiser Permanente Fresno Medical Center at 7300 North Fresno Street. Greeter stations, including the main information desk, are being remodeled. New interior signage also will make it easier for patients and the public to find where they need to go.

Starting in August, patients staying on the third floor of the Fresno hospital will see rooms with brighter colors, new flooring, flat-screen televisions and pull-out beds, which will be more convenient for family members who stay with patients overnight.

“We are really trying to create an environment that is focused on providing high-quality care for our patients,” Tylar said. “These projects are part of Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to create a warm, welcoming experience in our facilities.”
