Kaiser Permanente celebrates 50 years in Panorama City
September 13, 2012 by James
Last month, Kaiser Permanente Panorama City commemorated five decades of service in Panorama City. The celebration was not only held in honor of the center’s 50th anniversary, but also served as a groundbreaking ceremony of its new specialty building in Panorama City. In addition, plans were revealed for a new medical center to be located in North Hollywood.
Events such as these offer a wide variety of possible business opportunities to Panorama City and surrounding print companies. Large business anniversary celebrations often make use of banner printing for such occasions. Also, when businesses and companies expand within an area, such as the new center to be constructed in North Hollywood, local printing companies are typically called upon to provide business card printing and stationery printing, as these business materials are often necessary to reflect the recent changes.
The facility in Panorama first opened in 1962 with Irving Kiltsner, MD at the helm as the center’s first medical director. Dr. Kiltsner was in attendance at the ceremony and was joined by the Southern California Permanente Medical Group’s executive medical director, Edward M. Ellison, MD. The senior vice president of operations for the Southern California office, Bill Caswell, was also present at the celebration, in addition to a number of area business leaders, community members, and elected officials.
$250,000 in benefits grants was also awarded at the ceremony to a number of non-profit organizations in the area. These organizations included Youth Speak Collectively, Valley Family Center, Penny Lane Centers, San Fernando Valley Community Mental Health Center, and a number of other nonprofits located in and around the area.
