Membership Milestone: 250,000 members!
Thank you! We’re so happy that more people are realizing the tremendous value Kaiser Permanente provides. As the state’s largest integrated care organization, we’ve grown more than 11% over the past four years and now provide excellent care and service to more than a quarter of a million members in Hawaii.
More people are embracing the concept of total health — caring for the body, mind and spirit — which has enabled our model of integrated care, affordable coverage and preventive medicine to shine. Kaiser Permanente provides care and coverage together, the convenience of multiple services under one roof, and industry-leading technology.
Local business leaders say they trust us. Most of our membership in 2016 (more than 5,000) came from commercial groups, ranging from small businesses to some of the largest employers in the state.
Our focus has always been on you — the people of Hawaii. That’s why we’ve opened new facilities and launched technologies that allow us to serve members with greater convenience and accessibility. For example, we opened the Lihue Clinic on Kauai in February 2016 and Kona Medical Office on Hawaii Island in July 2014. Our digital services such as telehealth, video consults, and “medical selfie” technology enable members to seek care from their personal physicians or specialists without leaving home. More than 100,000 registered members in Hawaii use Kaiser Permanente’s online health management portal, My Health Manager on KP.org, to access lab results, manage prescriptions, schedule appointments and email physicians.
Mahalo to our valued customers, members and patients! We look forward to continuing to grow as we provide excellent care and service to help our communities thrive.
