KP invests $1.8 billion in 2011 to help create healthier communities
Kaiser Permanente 2011 Community Benefit Annual Report is now available. The report, titled “Deeper & Stronger,” underscores how our commitment to total health continues to grow by reinforcing Kaiser Permanente’s mission to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.
While the American economy appeared to be getting better in 2011, as unemployment rates dropped to 8.6 percent, the lowest level in two and a half years, the relief did not extend to many people. The percentage of American adults without health insurance increased in 2011 to 17.1 percent — up from 16.8 percent in 2010. Kaiser Permanente took action to offer some relief, with more than $1.8 billion devoted to community benefit activities in 2011.
