Kaiser Permanente encourages passengers to destress.

Integrated health care system Kaiser Permanente has announced the introduction of ways for passengers departing Terminal 2 at the Oakland International Airport to reduce the stress of air travel and encourage them to stay healthy this busy holiday travel season and beyond, the company said.

This effort is part of nonprofit Kaiser Permanente´s commitment to the total health of body, mind and spirit of the communities it serves.

Portions of the security checkpoint at OAK Terminal 2 have been transformed to depict some of the most soothing aspects of nature, including the sights and sounds of a California redwood forest, a blue sky filled with clouds, and a 1,500-square foot “living wall” filled with plants that act as natural air filters.

Kaiser Permanente is committed to helping shape the future of health care. The company is recognized as one of America´s leading health care providers and not-for-profit health plans.

Oakland International Airport is the fourth busiest airport in California and second busiest in the San Francisco Bay Area. Serving over 13 million travelers annually, OAK is the closest airport to the region´s top business and tourism venues.
