Kaiser Permanente in the Community
At Kaiser Permanente our mission has not changed in nearly 70 years: to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. Our efforts cover a wide range of community health activities, and they are all based on a long-term approach. To create changes that last, our partners need long-term commitment, and long-term support.
To better serve Santa Clara County, we have combined the Kaiser Permanente San Jose and Santa Clara public affairs and grants programs into one new South Bay program that allows us to have a more coordinated approach to providing resources to the community.
We coordinate funding and resources to support community partners, organizations and agencies. Our physicians and practitioners contribute their time and expertise. We conduct educational programs and we share our research findings and clinical guidelines with our partners and the public.
We’re providing care and coverage for people with low incomes; lending a hand to community health care facilities; making it easier for community residents to make healthier choices. Through Kaiser Permanente in the Community, we’re helping to build healthier lives, stronger communities, and better conditions in the neighborhoods in which we all live.
