A practice of medicine created with patients at the heart

Permanente Medicine is designed to sustain physician careers by letting you focus on what matters most — your patients and their loved ones. We combine our culture of collaboration with resources, evidence, clinical technology, and state-of-the-art facilities that let us place our patients at the center of all we do.

Permanente Medical Groups are self-governed multispecialty practices that are led by physicians. They work closely with health plan and hospital collaborators in a tightly integrated relationship. This unique care model, called Kaiser Permanente, lets us deliver value-based care that emphasizes and rewards healthy outcomes while making health care and medicine more affordable.

A focus on physician wellness

Kaiser Permanente’s mission is to provide high-quality health care services and to improve the health of our patients and the communities we serve. To support our mission, Permanente Medical Groups are committed to creating an environment where physicians and other clinicians find joy and meaning in medicine. Since 2013, our medical groups have focused on promoting physician and clinician wellness and reducing physician burnout.

Our medical groups also offer a variety of programs to help develop personal resiliency and provide support during difficult times for our physicians and clinicians. Collegiality and collaboration, along with respect for equity, diversity, and inclusion, are enduring hallmarks of our physician-led medical groups.

“An inclusive, safe environment is a foundation to wellness … it’s creating a culture where people can be whole.”

T. Ruth Chang, MD

Family Physician and Chief People Officer, Northwest Permanente
