Kaiser opens Snellville office

SNELLVILLE — Kaiser Permanente of Georgia will celebrate today the grand opening of its Snellville Medical Office, the organization’s fourth location in Gwinnett County.

The addition of the new 7,500-square-foot facility at 2240 Fountain Drive is part of Kaiser Permanente of Georgia’s ongoing initiative to make access to health care more convenient for its 230,000 members across metro Atlanta.

Kaiser Permanente of Georgia invested more than $2 million in interior construction, furniture, and medical and IT equipment for the Snellville Medical Office. Staffed by physicians of The Southeast Permanente Medical Group, the office offers internal medicine, pediatrics, Ob/Gyn, radiology and lab services, as well as an on-site pharmacy.

As Georgia’s largest nonprofit health plan, Kaiser Permanente is committed to improving the health of its members and the communities it serves. In honor of the grand opening, Kaiser Permanente of Georgia is donating $10,000 to Dream House for Medically Fragile Children Inc.

The nonprofit organization based in Lilburn trains families to care for children with complex health issues at home. Since 2001, Dream House has served more than 1,000 medically fragile children living in Georgia.

The addition of the Snellville Medical Office brings the number of facilities in Kaiser Permanente of Georgia’s 28-county service area to 24.
