Inspiring Change Together
Innovation is about doing thousands of little things, every day, to continually generate momentum toward the future. We're looking for those who are change-ready and change-driven. Who see the value of problem-solving. Who envision what's best for our members, employees, and communities — and endeavor to create the solutions. Because when you're in the business of saving lives, every detail matters.
Ideas Can Come From Anyone And Anywhere
We cultivate a culture where ideas can come from anywhere, and have a clear path to fruition. The nurse who recognizes an opportunity to make care more efficient. The procurement specialist who identifies a new pipeline. The finance leader who streamlines strategy. In an environment where innovation is the standard, it becomes something to which we can all contribute.
We relentlessly pursue new and exciting ways to leverage technology as a way to enhance health and care. From developing a leading-edge mobile app to creating new tools to help identify high-risk patients, we embrace technology's role in elevating our services and putting people in touch with care.
Together Kaiser Permanente's research centers comprise one of the largest and most comprehensive nonacademic research programs in the United States. And our reach is evident: in 2017 alone we received $111.7 million in federally funded research, funded $63.5 million in research, participated in 2,540 studies (including clinical trials), and published 1,658 articles.
Garfield Innovation Center
This unique center couples the inspiration to envision the future of health care — with the tools to build it. The 37,000 square-foot space fuels hands-on collaboration, quick prototyping, and technology testing in environments that include a simulated operating room, various patient rooms, a robust technology network, and more.
Center for Total Health
An interactive learning destination for the public, policymakers, and the health care industry at large, the Center for Total Health is dedicated to sharing, developing, and accelerating ideas that improve total health, the center also showcases some of the latest health tools and technology prototypes being piloted at KP’s medical centers.
Electronic Health Records
Advanced. Cutting-edge. The best in the business. These are all ways to describe Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®. One of the first and largest medical record systems in the country, this platform grows daily and is a big reason why our hospitals rank among the most wired in the industry.
Protecting the environment is a natural extension of our mission to improve community health. We are one of the top users of solar power in the U.S. and have a long history of working with manufacturers to remove harmful chemicals from medical products. One of our leaders even wrote the book on Greening Health Care!

I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time for more than 4 years
Great place to work -- exhibited amazing teamwork, valued work-life balance and opportunities for growth. I would still be there if it wasnt for my 2-hour (on a good day which was rare or if I left my house at 4:00a!) commute from Santa Cruz.Full Review
