Strive to Thrive 2023

The Kaiser Permanente Strive to Thrive Healthcare Career Fair was recently hosted and organized by South Bay Kaiser Permanente in partnership with San Jose State University, local nonprofits and community leaders.

At Kaiser Permanente, we believe in lifting up, giving back and working together with our local community. We chose to develop Strive to Thrive with a focus on youth ages 12 to 18 because it is imperative to the future of healthcare that people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds are participating in some way. Our community is vibrant and beautifully different, and it is important to deliver healthcare that is inclusive, equitable, culturally and linguistically appropriate.

We learned that our community, youth, and their parents are eager to learn about different career paths and recognize the importance of being exposed to new opportunities. Most of the 2023 Strive to Thrive attendees were BIPOC youth (92%) and about 70% were youth who attended without their parents. More than 270 people participated in the Strive to Thrive Healthcare Career Fair, including many KP physicians and employees, who donated their time to help inspire the next generation of healthcare professionals.

We are so grateful to our educational partners who recognized the importance of providing this opportunity to our local youth to learn more about healthcare as a career option. These partners include: San Jose State University, Child Advocates of Silicon Valley, Latino Education Advancement Foundation, Girl Scouts, Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, PARTI Program, and the Silicon Valley Education Foundation.

Latest Updates on COVID-19 Testing

Most of the time, you can use an easy and reliable no-cost home antigen test for your COVID-19 testing needs.

PCR tests are used when directed by your doctor or when you’re required to show a negative PCR test for international travel or in circumstances where self-tests are not an option, such as to prove a negative COVID-19 test. Please check testing requirements prior to choosing a testing option.

You can now get a rapid PCR test with results in 24 hours or less at our convenient Northern California Kaiser Permanente testing locations. To get your test, start with an E-visit.

Visitor Policy and COVID-19 Information

We have updated the visitation guidance for hospital and ambulatory settings based on the most recent public health order by the CDPH to include the key changes below:

Hospitals and clinics may now allow all patients to have visitors without restriction.

Visitors are no longer required to show proof of vaccination or of negative COVID-19 test result to visit their family or friends in the hospital.

When the California Department of Public Health guidelines are updated as of April 3, 2023, masks will be recommended but not required in most parts of the medical center. Please adhere to all self-symptom screening required for entry to our facilities as posted at entry points. You may receive a recommendation to wear a KP supplied mask upon entry to facility to improve safety. Signs will be posted in areas where masks are required. Per the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health, during the designated winter virus period, Nov. 1 to March 31 of each year, anyone entering our facilities must continue to wear a well-fitted mask that covers their nose, mouth, and chin, regardless of vaccination status.
