Our History

Our story began in the shipyards and steel mills of World War II when Sidney Garfield, MD and Henry J. Kaiser partnered to champion the cause of pre-paid health care. In the years that followed, Kaiser Permanente gained recognition as a trusted health advisor. Being both a care provider and an insurance provider created a unique win-win situation. The organization benefited from keeping its members healthy. And they benefited from staying healthy.

Today, Kaiser Permanente is America's leading not-for-profit integrated health plan serving more than 10.6 million people in eight states and the District of Columbia. Thanks to the dedication of more than 186,000 employees and 18,000 physicians, in a single year we may schedule more than 44 million doctor office visits, deliver 101,000 babies, perform 137,000 inpatient surgeries, and fill more than 78 million prescriptions.*
