Introducing One Medical’s New Home-Base

Seven years ago, we moved into a small office on Sutter Street in San Francisco with 35 team members and a shared mission to transform healthcare for all. Today, we have over 350 team members in our San Francisco HQ, helping bring that same mission to life. We’re proud of the progress we’ve made so far, and excited to kick off a new chapter as we settle into One Embarcadero Center — our new home-base in the heart of downtown SF.

At One Medical, everything we do is built around how people live and work in today’s modern world – and that starts with the people who work here. To design our new office, we asked for input from our team members and incorporated those ideas into a one-of-a-kind workspace that could further support our mission and core values, while meeting the needs of a growing, highly collaborative workforce. The results? Take a look!

With sweeping views of the city skyline and San Francisco bay, our new HQ spans three floors and over 60,000 square feet — nearly tripling the size of our previous office. The views are a bonus, but this move signifies much more for One Medical.

As a team, we come from a pretty diverse range of backgrounds — from technology to clinical to design, and more. We needed a space that could offer a range of flexible work zones for teams from across the organization to more easily and efficiently collaborate on their shared work. So, we reimagined our office with a number of human-centered design elements; from tech-enabled conference rooms and adjustable standing desks with ergonomic chairs to open huddle spaces and designated quiet areas. Now, team members have the tools and space to work together in whatever environment they find most effective.

The central hub of the office is a large, open dining area with enough room to host our entire SF-based team. This space will also act as a fully-equipped presentation area during events and all-hands meetings, as well as the gathering place for our team-wide, family-style lunches every Thursday.

An internal, integrated stairwell connects teams across all three floors, and features a custom wire sculpture designed to represent the cross functional nature of our organization and our shared commitment to reimagining primary care. Unique murals designed by artist Cody Hudson also add to the space, with each piece creatively differentiating the three floors as Mind, Body and Spirit. These themes also factor into the fun conference room and phone booth names that can be found throughout the office. Team members also have access to gender inclusive restrooms, kitchens stocked with healthy snacks, and wellness areas for new mothers on each floor.

While this move marks a significant milestone for One Medical, our work is far from over. With over 1,600 employees nationwide, we’re scaling quickly, launching in new markets, and expanding services in our offices across the country. Our new space will support rapid growth throughout our organization — from the engineering and product teams building tools that improve the way people give and receive care, to the clinical providers putting them to use every day. We’re looking forward to welcoming many future team members to our new HQ, and are excited to be in a space that can support our continued commitment to delivering outstanding patient care to the diverse communities we serve.
