Site Special Features:   

Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center is located in Southern California in the beach city areas and surrounding communities of Harbor City, Long Beach, Redondo Beach, Carson, and Manhattan Beach. In 1950, Kaiser Permanente began caring for the area's longshoremen at a small clinic in San Pedro. We began serving our communities in 1957 when our Harbor City hospital opened for business, and we have continued to grow our medical offices to improve access for our members ever since. Services were expanded with the opening of our North Hospital tower along with the Manhattan Beach and Signal Hill Medical Office Buildings.
