Community outreach

Imagine a world...

where everyone has equal and affordable access to quality care. A world free of health disparities. A place where good health is a reality for all. This is our vision. Ambitious? You bet. Achievable? We absolutely believe so. And it's a goal that each and every one of our employees and physicians are working toward every day.

As a nonprofit organization, we understand that when our neighborhoods are healthy, everyone benefits. We are committed to spreading health by sharing our knowledge and assets; strengthening the safety net; promoting policies and environmental changes that advocate healthy eating and active living; providing care and coverage for low-income, uninsured, and underserved individuals; and working toward the elimination of disparities in health care. In 2015, we invested approximately $2.2 billion in community outreach efforts including $259 million in medical financial assistance programs, $41.9 million in grants and donations, $21.4 million in consumer health education, and served over 850,000 Medicaid and CHIP members.

As our country's policymakers explore the idea of health care reform, they continue to turn to Kaiser Permanente as a model of integration, aligned incentives, and coordinated care. Why? Because our business structure ensures that we are all relentlessly focused on improving the health of our members and communities. And we couldn't be prouder.

To share just a few highlights of our community benefit, in 2015 we:

  • invested approximately $2.2 billion in the environment, people, knowledge, and community
  • published over 1,300 articles in peer-reviewed journals
  • continued the "Dose" initiatives to help inform communities of the importance of leading healthy lifestyles
  • and sponsored more than 54 regular farmers' markets at our medical centers and business facilities across the country. Find one near you.

And that's just the beginning—the story continues every second of every day.
