These investments in facilities are to ensure Kaiser Permanente can meet the needs of our growing membership and communities. Additional capital expenditures are going toward supporting technology to advance patient care — both in person and virtually — as well as our digital capabilities to provide patients even greater convenience and choice in accessing care and services.
Kaiser Permanente membership has grown by approximately 362,000 members since December 31, 2015, totaling approximately 10.6 million members as of June 30, 2016. “Kaiser Permanente’s membership and financial stability are important, as earnings are reinvested to support our care delivery system to improve patient outcomes and increase affordability,” said Kathy Lancaster, executive vice president and chief financial officer.
Consistent with their not-for-profit mission, KFHP/H also devote resources to improve the health of the communities they serve. KFHP/H’s community benefit investments provide care for low-income individuals and underserved communities, reinforce community-based health partnerships, support research and train health care workers. In the second quarter of 2016, KFHP/H continued to invest in a range of programs to serve the needs of local communities.
