improving the health of people and communities

In 2018, more than 215,000 people worked at Kaiser Permanente.

They include a wide spectrum of professions: nurses, technicians, architects, pharmacists, designers, researchers, accountants, and custodians — to name just a few.

What brings us to Kaiser Permanente is our shared commitment to the total health of our members and the communities we serve. We work together to deliver life-changing results.

For example, our employees and doctors in Oregon developed the Ventricular Assist Device Program, which ensures blood is pumped through people’s bodies when their hearts can’t get the job done alone.

And for the past 4 years, it’s been a resounding success
