Founded in 1945, the company has grown from a 12-bed hospital into a leading integrated health delivery system that serves nearly 8.7 million members in nine states and the District of Columbia. Today, Kaiser Permanente is nationally and internationally recognized for providing innovative, high-quality, evidence-based healthcare through the advantages of its integrated insurance and care delivery infrastructure.
