In response, another tour has been added to the schedule. The new one is set for May 4.

The new hospital is located at 2875 N.W. Stucki Ave., and the tours include visits to the areas that provide emergency services, robotic-assisted surgery, labor and delivery and hip and knee replacements. Light refreshments will also be served.

After the hospital opens, emergency services will be offered to anyone, regardless of their insurance status. All other medical services will be available to those who are members of the Kaiser Permanente health plan.
