About Kaiser Permanente of Washington

Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health plans, providing high-quality, affordable health care services, and working to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

Quality care with you at the center. Your personal physician is a key advocate for your health. You can choose your own doctor with Kaiser Permanente or a contracted community physician and, working together, you'll make decisions about your health and coordinate your care journey.  When you choose care at Kaiser Permanente, our doctors, medical facilities, pharmacies, and labs are all part of one organization. They’re connected to each other, and to you, through an electronic health record system so you get informed, personalized care. We work closely with our community network providers to provide our members a similar level of coordinated, high-quality care.

World-class specialty care. When you’re dealing with a serious health issue, your health becomes the center of your world. That’s why you’re at the center of everything we do. With our plans, you get excellent care from top-notch doctors across a wide range of specialties.

Your care, your way. When it comes to the way you get and manage your care, you have many options in addition to emailing or seeing your physician. These include virtual care, online visits, telephone visits, 24/7 online care chat instant messaging with a clinician, consultation nurse, and walk-in clinics. With Kaiser Permanente, you can choose how, when, and where to get care for you and your family.
