Letter from our Leaders

Kaiser Permanente's history is deeply rooted in the values of public health, community health, and health for all. From the very beginning, Henry J. Kaiser envisioned the organization this way.

Today we remain one of the few health care systems dedicated to improving the total health of our members, our patients, and our communities.

Like our approach to medicine, our community investments support a unique and innovative philosophy. Rather than just writing a check, we work side by side with other organizations, providing grant funding, clinical expertise, and medical research. We believe this helps us make a greater, more sustainable impact.

In this interactive report, we invite you to read about and experience just a few examples of the difference we're making in Northern California.
