Kaiser Permanente has signed a 20,000-square-foot lease at The Pavilions office park, a devlopment across the street from the Memorial North hospital that has sat vacant since it was constructed in 2008.

Kaiser spokeswoman C.J. Moore said the facility will be occupied by the Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, which will open a first Medicare clinic at the north side location.

The clinic will be Colorado Springs’ only Medicare-focused healthcare facility, following the closure of the Osteopathic Foundation’s 20-bed Centennial Boulevard clinic earlier this year.
