Kaiser Permanente in the Santa Clarita Community
Marathon weekend came to an end with of course, the marathon! Team KP THRIVE runners got up before sunrise to run and we were there to cheer them on.
May 18th was Bike to Work Day in Santa Clarita. Kaiser Permanente employees enjoyed cycling to work.
As a local sponsor at the Amgen Tour of California Stage 4 Finish and Lifestyle Festival in Santa Clarita on May 17, the Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Public Affairs team was on hand all day, passing out goodies and promoting our new specialty care facility, Santa Clarita Medical Offices 2, set to open early 2018. We encouraged festival goers to hop on our special stationary bike, designed to charge mobile phones through good old fashioned pedal power. It was a fun day generating excitement about our Santa Clarita expansion.
Leaders from Kaiser Permanente Panorama City were also in attendance to cheer on the cyclists.

To kick off the week’s Amgen tour festivities, we also grabbed our helmets and tuned up our bikes for the City of Santa Clarita’s Hit the Trail Community Bike Ride on May 13.
Connected to the Community
Kaiser Permanente believes that when we collaborate and support each other, our work improves the quality of health and life in our communities.
Our social mission is to care for the communities we serve and help them thrive. By offering grants, events, event sponsorship, and community volunteerism, we extend our care, knowledge, and expertise beyond our walls and into the communities within the Santa Clarita Valley.
Kaiser Permanente is dedicated to improving the health of people living and working in Santa Clarita Valleys. Beyond contributing to strengthening the health care safety net through provision of emergency medical care, charity care, Medi-Cal and Healthy Families services, and Kaiser Permanente charitable coverage programs, we provide qualified nonprofit organizations with grant funding in order to improve the health and well being of the communities we serve. In 2016, Kaiser Permanente granted 10 funding requests in the Santa Clarita Valley to address the health of our local communities totaling just over $62,000.

Through partnerships with community organizations and governmental agencies, Kaiser Permanente strives to benefit the community by addressing issues and concerns that affect overall community health. One of the ways that the Kaiser Permanente does this in the Santa Clarita Valley is through sponsorships that support community events and activities.
In an effort to reduce paper waste and streamline the event sponsorship application process, we are pleased to announce an online application system. Effective immediately, all event sponsorship applications will be processed online.
