Access to care in many languages 

Communicating about health concerns is difficult enough without a language barrier. That’s why Oakland Medical Center has caregivers who are trained to provide care in other languages, including Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, and American Sign Language. And in the exam room, our telephone language line offers interpreters who speak Spanish, Hindi, Russian, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, Farsi, and more.

Supporting the diverse needs of our community
Caregivers at this hospital have partnered with our Institute for Culturally Competent Care to ensure all members can easily access care. Throughout the facility, signs appear in a variety of languages. And members can access culturally relevant education classes, videos, and printed support materials in several languages. (Some classes may require a fee.)

By the numbers
The flagship hospital for Kaiser Permanente, our Oakland Medical Center is a leader in offering community education and highly specialized care. It has provided excellent clinical education for nurses since 1950—first with our innovative Permanente School of Nursing, and now with a New Graduate Training Program and a Distance Learning Program. The facility has:

  • 761 physicians (between Oakland and Richmond Medical Centers)
  • 341 beds
  • 14-bed perioperative department
  • 60 critical care beds

A Center of Excellence in specialty care for Northern California
The Oakland Medical Center is a cutting-edge specialty care center, employing board-certified physicians and surgeons who teach at renowned universities like the University of California at San Francisco.

  • Comprehensive pediatric care program
  • Cochlear implants
  • Genetics

Farmers’ market makes healthy eating easy
A weekly Kaiser Permanente Farmers’ Market runs each Friday outside the entrance to our flagship Oakland hospital, in front of the Fabiola Medical Office. The markets bring the best and freshest products from California farms to our members and the community. Oakland members can stock up on fresh produce every Friday, year-round, 10am to 2pm.
