As a nonprofit health care organization, improving health in the communities we serve is an important part of our mission. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission took on new urgency. In the newly released Kaiser Permanente 2021 Community Health Snapshot, you’ll find videos, stories, and graphics highlighting our contributions, investments, and partnerships focused on protecting hard-hit communities and supporting a just recovery from the pandemic.
In 2021, Kaiser Permanente invested $1.05 billion in our Northern California communities. This included $167 million for charitable health coverage and medical financial assistance, $85 million to support the education of new health care professionals, $52 million in charitable contributions, and $19 million to support research to improve the delivery of health care for all.
