Better care with a connected team

From the minute you receive a diagnosis, teams of specialists — along with your primary care physician — are working together to create your treatment plan. They each bring unique perspectives and expertise, and coordinate across locations and specialties to deliver seamless, personalized, and effective care.

Care moments

Real members share meaningful memories from their treatment journeys.

“Dr. Ogasawara has always made me feel at home, almost like I was talking to a relative, so to me, he’s definitely family.”

“I was able to see the breast surgeon in the morning, walk upstairs and see the geneticist, have a mammogram and blood work — everything under one roof, in one day, and it was really quick.”

HEIDI HAYES

A member in the Mid-Atlantic States

Personalized care and 360-degree support

Specialty care at Kaiser Permanente isn’t one-size-fits-all. Your entire care team is personally invested in your health — so they take the time to listen, explain, and guide you. We’re here to give you what you need, whether it’s care in your language, social and emotional support, or a chat about alternative treatment options. This personalized approach provides peace of mind for you and your family — and most importantly, a healthy future for you.


More than a treatment plan

You’re not just getting treatment. You’re getting care.

You can talk to your care team about anything, and you always have a choice and a voice.

It’s not your job to keep track of what kind of care you need. It’s ours.

Each care provider brings unique expertise and is personally invested in your health.

Advanced treatment and evidence-based care

We treat illnesses using the latest evidence, technologies, and techniques — and continually innovate new ways to advance care delivery and improve health outcomes.

Transforming care through technology

Technology is powerful. And within our connected system, it can do even more to help improve care and save lives.

Accelerating care when every second matters

Time is of the essence during a stroke — about 2 million brain cells die every minute until treatment starts.1 By synchronizing technology and bringing remote specialists into the room, we’re able to give stroke patients life-saving medication almost twice as fast as the national average.2

Using data to predict, manage, and minimize risk

Our electronic health record system identifies patients whose conditions are likely to get worse in the next 12 hours — then triggers an alert to clinicians, so they can closely monitor and prioritize their care. This program has helped us reduce inpatient mortality risk.
