America's leading nonprofit integrated health plan, Kaiser Permanente serves nearly ten million people from 38 hospitals and more than 600 medical office buildings and other facilities in eight states and the District of Columbia. Thanks to the dedication of more than 195,000 employees and physicians, in a single year we may schedule more than 40 million outpatient visits, deliver nearly 98,000 babies, perform nearly 224,000 inpatient surgeries, and conduct more than 74 million prescription refills.*
Focused on the health and well-being of our members and communities, the people of Kaiser Permanente continually elevate the state of health care with progressive products, services, and advancements. We come from many different backgrounds, but we all believe in taking a proactive role in health and well-being. That means we don't just recommend what the latest research shows, we conduct our own research. We treat our members, colleagues, and communities as family, and uphold the trust they place in us by safeguarding their privacy. We have high expectations for ourselves and each other. We believe in spreading health—online, offline, through educational programs and awareness campaigns, and through good ol' word of mouth. We practice well-care as well as sick-care, and advocate prevention as well as treatment. We discuss, debate, and shape public policy. We walk for the cure, buckle up for safety, bike for the cause, and run for the joy of it (and sometimes for that cookie we ate at lunch). We believe pink ribbons and yellow bracelets make more than fashion statements. And we believe in our power to make a difference. We are Kaiser Permanente and we stand for health. Yours. Ours. And everyone's.
