About Kaiser Permanente

Company Description

Serving approximately 8.7 million members in nine states and the District of Columbia, Kaiser Permanente is America's leading nonprofit integrated health plan.

Kaiser Permanente's mission is to provide high-quality, affordable health care services to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

Our Northern California Region provides integrated health care services to approximately 3.2 million members. Approximately 4,400 physicians of The Permanente Medical Group provide services at 20 medical centers and numerous medical offices.

Company History

Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is the nation’s largest not-for-profit health plan, serving more than 8.6 million members, with headquarters in Oakland, Calif. It comprises:

  1.   • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.

  • Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and their subsidiaries

  • The Permanente Medical Groups.

At Kaiser Permanente, physicians are responsible for medical decisions. The Permanente Medical Groups, which provide care for Kaiser Permanente members, continuously develop and refine medical practices to help ensure that care is delivered in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

Kaiser Permanente’s creation resulted from the challenge of providing Americans medical care during the Great Depression and World War II, when most people could not afford to go to a doctor. Among the innovations it has brought to U.S. health care are:

  • prepaid health plans, which spread the cost to make it more affordable

  • physician group practice to maximize their abilities to care for patients

  • a focus on preventing illness as much as on caring for the sick

  • an organized delivery system, putting as many services as possible under one roof

Honors & Awards

Kaiser Permanente of Northern California has earned an "Excellent" rating from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)-the nation's leading reviewer of health plan quality for consumers and employers. Excellent is the top rating granted by NCQA, which reviews satisfaction surveys, preventive measures, physician credentialing, member services and improvement initiatives.*

Both our Northern and Southern California regions were the only health plans in California identified by the NCQA in its list of the best health care programs in the Pacific States. (NCQA's The State of Health Care Quality 2003)

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations accredits all Kaiser Foundation Hospitals in California.

For the seventh straight year, no other health plan has earned higher ratings from the California Cooperative Health Reporting Initiative on more measures than Kaiser Permanente. The annual ratings measure clinical quality and member satisfaction. (CCHRI Report on Quality 2003)

Our Northern California region received more three-star "Excellent" ratings than any other health plan surveyed by California's Office of the Patient Advocate on California's Quality of Care Report Card 2003-04.
