Connected care

We strive to give you the right care, the right way, so we work closely with your primary care provider. We’ve developed guidance to help primary care providers, pediatricians, allergy doctors, and pharmacists treat conditions ranging from sinus infections to vertigo. We collaborate just as closely with other specialists and can seamlessly refer you to any of our partners, ensuring that your care is about you — nothing else.

We hold weekly meetings with surgeons, radiation oncologists, and neuro-radiologists to review tumor cases, meaning that ten or more doctors could review your case at any given time and provide you with the best possible care.

The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.

Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.

Each year, Kaiser Permanente doctors are recognized as top doctors by their peers and publications such as 5280 magazine. Some have joined us from top-ranked academic training programs and successful private practices. Others have been honored for their invaluable contributions to medical advancements and new surgical techniques that help patients heal quickly and with less pain.

Our hospital partners have a track record of success and are often recognized as regional or national centers of excellence for their specialties. We also partner with national organizations, contributing to large, cutting-edge, research projects.
