Help staying healthy

Kaiser Permanente is built around the idea of promoting health — not just treating illnesses. From reminding you to get a flu shot to screening for cancer, we start looking out for you on day one. Here’s how we make it easier for you to stay feeling your best.

We’re here when you need us, 24/7

When you’re healthy, you usually don’t think about the doctor — until you need one ASAP. If you have a sudden illness or minor injury, your care starts with a simple call to our 24/7 advice line. We can give treatment advice, schedule a same-day appointment with a doctor, or give you the location of your nearest urgent care center.

Your partner in total health

Help fine-tuning your lifestyle

Work with a wellness coach by phone to improve your eating habits, stress less, quit vaping or tobacco, and more — at no extra cost. And enjoy discounts on alternative therapies like acupuncture.

A plan to treat the whole you

If you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, or addiction, your doctor can help you find care that works for you — and you don’t need a referral for mental health care.

A doctor who’s your personal advocate

From tracking your health screenings to coordinating your care in an emergency, your doctor is there to connect you to specialists and help you get the right care.

Support on your journey to parenthood

Becoming a parent can spark a million questions — from all the “do’s and don’ts” of pregnancy to caring for your new baby. So we created a resource with everything we think new parents might need to know — to help you feel empowered and prepared at every step.
