We are dedicated to total health of body, mind, and spirit, and we pursue efforts that broaden access to the highest quality care for people when they need it. We believe all of us deserve to live healthy lives in our homes, our workplaces, and our neighborhoods. That’s why, for more than 70 years, we have worked to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

We accomplish this work in countless ways, from funding knowledge and resource sharing programs that address health disparities to providing assistance with health care costs to people in need. Our commitment is exhibited in the many ways we reach out and work with others to build a healthy future for all.

Getting Healthy and Keeping Fit

Albert Gonzales, a very motivated seventh grader at Loma Vista Middle School in Riverside, California was determined to get in shape. He experienced first-hand how poor nutrition and lack of exercise can have a negative impact on long term health. Albert joined the school’s running club to improve his health and physical fitness. Not only did this extraordinary young man adopt new, healthier habits, but he has since encouraged his mother to start jogging and eating more nutritious foods, too.  

Loma Vista Middle School is an example of a Thriving School that is making a positive impact on the health and lives of its students, teachers and staff. Thriving Schools further expands Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to total health through work with local schools and school districts to improve healthy eating, physical activity, and school environments in K-12 schools.
