SAN FRANCISCO – Brown & Toland Physicians announced today that it is relocating its corporate headquarters from San Francisco to downtown Oakland. The company plans to move to its new headquarters by April 2016.
Brown & Toland executed a multi-year lease for 60,000 square feet at the Clorox Building, in the City Center complex in downtown Oakland. The company, with doctors, clinicians and patients in San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, Alameda and Contra Costa counties, will also maintain a satellite office in San Francisco.
The relocation of the corporate office to the East Bay will unite Brown & Toland employees in Emeryville with those currently located in San Francisco, bringing most of the company’s employees together in one location. Additionally, the move to the East Bay will help the company save significantly on administrative costs.
“Brown & Toland has been a leader in the healthcare industry in San Francisco since 1992, and we expanded to the East Bay and Alameda County in 2011,” said Richard Fish, Brown & Toland’s chief executive officer. “As a growing organization, we are excited about the move to Oakland and continuing to provide all of our Bay Area doctors with the electronic tools, programs and services they need to provide quality patient care.”
Fish noted that the 60,000 square-foot space will be custom-built to fit Brown & Toland’s needs. He added that when looking for office space, accessibility to public transportation, major highways and a thriving downtown area became chief priorities.
“The City of Oakland welcomes Brown & Toland Physicians to downtown and invites their nearly 300 employees to experience Oakland’s vibrant arts and dining scene,” said Mark Sawicki, Economic & Workforce Development Director. “More companies are discovering that setting up shop in Oakland provides easier commutes for their employees, great access to workforce amenities and lower operating costs.”
Brown & Toland’s corporate headquarters has been located in the South of Market area (SOMA) in San Francisco since July 2003, and the organization also currently has employees at locations in Emeryville and Modesto.
