Kaiser Permanente Orange County paid tribute to their community benefit partners at its annual “Community Partner Celebration” on Dec. 5 at the new Anaheim Medical Center Campus. This year, Kaiser Permanente Orange County’s Community Benefit Program gave $552,500 to local nonprofit organizations and community health clinics who provide affordable healthcare and services to Orange County’s underserved and uninsured population.
“This is part of our mission of being a true community-based healthcare services provider,” said Julie Miller-Phipps, senior vice president and executive director of Kaiser Permanente Orange County. “In addition to our community benefit dollars, we also provide in-kind contributions to groups and our physician partners routinely volunteer their time to working with the undeserved. We are proud of our continued commitment to a healthier Orange County.”
These nonprofit organizations build Orange County’s safety net, addressing high-priority community needs. Each of the organizations receiving grants is known for serving vulnerable citizens. They do so by improving healthcare access, disease prevention, education and the obesity problem.
Some of these organizations include Interval House, American Lung Association in California, Tiger Woods Learning Center, MOMS Orange County, and Acacia Adult Day Services.
