Kaiser Permanente has begun recruiting and hiring staff for its new campus.
About 500 IT staff will be hired in Colorado by 2015.
The Kaiser Permanente IT office will be located in a 120,000-square-foot, five-story building at 6560 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard in Greenwood Village.
The building offers easy access to major highways and has several shops, cafes and fitness centers within an easy walk. The building also includes an independently operated deli and a day care center.
