At Kaiser Permanente, we recognize that where we live and how we live has a big impact on our health and well-being.

Our work is driven by our mission: to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and our communities. It’s also driven by our heritage of prevention and health promotion and by our conviction that good health is a fundamental right.

We are committed to improving the health of our communities. We do that by ensuring health access, improving community conditions for health and equity, and advancing the future of community health through innovation. We also share our financial resources, research, nurses and physicians, and our clinical practices and knowledge through a variety of grantmaking and investment efforts.

Community Health Snapshot

As a mission-based nonprofit, we have the responsibility and the opportunity to look at the bigger picture and touch more lives. We’re going a step further to integrate community, care and coverage in the pursuit of health. Our scale and permanence in communities mean we have the resources and relationships to make a real impact. Through these efforts, highlighted in our Community Health Snapshot, we help people live the lives they want to live.

Communities We Serve

Good health extends beyond the doctor’s office and the hospital. It begins with healthy environments: fresh fruits and vegetables in neighborhood stores, successful schools, clean air, accessible parks and safe playgrounds. Each of the communities in which we operate has unique needs, stories, and opportunities to advance health and health equity.
