Health care giants are racing to Roseville

Health care giants are racing to Roseville. Here’s what it means for patients – and the region’s economy

Roseville leaders are eagerly anticipating the addition of about 1,200 jobs, added growth and economic opportunity stemming from three expansions at Kaiser Permanente, Adventist Health and Sutter Health over the next several years.

The first building scheduled to open, in January 2019 at the intersection of North Sunrise Avenue and Stone Point Drive, is Adventist Health's corporate headquarters, which will consolidate the health care company's six Roseville buildings into one 275,000-square-foot building, expected to cost $100 million.

The Christian health care organization, which operates 19 hospitals and more than 280 clinics on the West Coast, has been based in Roseville since 1985, and is the sixth-largest employer in the city. Adventist owns the building that houses its current headquarters, at 2100 Douglas Blvd., but also leases five buildings around town.

Adventist's consolidation is "primarily space- and growth-related," vice president of talent strategy Doris Tetz Carpenter said.

“Our Roseville hub is very strategically focused to serve all our communities and clinics and hospitals," she said. "For us, the change is less about direct patient access in Roseville and more about supporting … the rest of our organizations."

Now, services like human resources, information technology and strategy will be in the same place. Adventist, which lists 24 available jobs in Roseville on its website, is also building a clinic for its Roseville employees, Tetz Carpenter said.

Matteoli said the city is pleased Adventist chose to build its corporate headquarters there.

It's "really great that they decided to consolidate and keep everything here," she said. "They’re a really neat addition to the city of Roseville." Mattel expects the new building to add about 800 jobs to the city.
