East Bay

Serving communities located in west Contra Costa County and northern Alameda County

Kaiser Permanente’s East Bay service area includes North Alameda County and parts of West Contra Costa County and is served by the Oakland and Richmond medical centers.

In addition to providing affordable health care and coverage for its members and patients, Kaiser Permanente engages the communities it serves with a variety of resources, including grants to address identified health needs, donations, sponsorships to support community partner events and activities, in-kind donations, and volunteers.

Community Health Needs Assessment

The Kaiser Permanente 2020–2022 Community Health Needs Assessment reports for the Oakland and Richmond medical centers reflect Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to addressing the most urgent social needs and community conditions to improve total health for all. To view the Community Health Needs Assessments for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital and submit comments, please visit the Kaiser Permanente Community Health Needs Assessments page.

Community Benefit Year-End Reports

At Kaiser Permanente, we believe in using the full range of our organization’s assets to improve the health of the communities we serve. We regularly gather data and seek input from our community partners and members to inform our investments and to guide the development of strategies that can make long-term, sustainable change and improve health. We are pleased to share our 2020 Community Benefit Year-End Reports for Kaiser Foundation Hospitals in Oakland and Richmond, which summarize our efforts and highlight specific strategies and resources we deployed to respond to the prioritized health needs in those communities.


Kaiser Permanente provides financial support to local nonprofit health and human service organizations with an emphasis on helping underserved communities. 

At this time, the Kaiser Permanente East Bay service area is accepting new grant applications by invitation only.


Kaiser Permanente East Bay partners with community-based organizations to support events and activities addressing our identified health needs and promoting healthy lifestyles, education, workforce development, and environmental stewardship.
