Kaiser Permanente was founded on the simple idea that everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy life. That’s why our members can find high-quality, affordable care and coverage in one place. They are at the center of everything we do — from pioneering new ways to treat cancer to building useful tools that make it easier to stay on top of their health.
Our employees and physicians reflect and embrace the diverse communities we serve. We strive to address inequities and disparities in health outcomes by providing culturally responsive, equitable care for all our members.
We value and respect employees and physicians of all backgrounds and identities. Their diverse perspectives are essential to achieving our mission.
We deliver care that is safe and effective, timely and efficient, culturally responsive and equitable.
We address the root causes of health inequity by supporting economic opportunity, affordable housing, safe and supportive schools, and a healthy environment.
Kaiser Permanente began in the shipyards, where women and men of all races, ethnicities, and abilities worked as peers.
