Kaiser Permanente has completed its acquisition of Group Health

Kaiser Permanente's acquisition of Group Health Cooperative became final today, and with that, Group Health is now part of the largest integrated health system in the nation.

By joining a nationally recognized nonprofit health care leader that is shaping the future of health in America, Group Health has the opportunity to offer their integrated model of care and coverage to more people and improve the health of members and communities throughout the state of Washington.

With the acquisition, Kaiser Permanente now serves more than 11.3 million members in eight states and the District of Columbia, providing both care and coverage.

Plans are underway for an external market launch as Kaiser Permanente in early March. At that time you'll see the Kaiser Permanente name in facilities, online, and in other materials, and members will receive a welcome letter from Kaiser Permanente and a new Kaiser Permanente ID card.

More information about Kaiser Permanente's market launch and how you can participate will be available in the coming weeks.
