Kaiser Permanente Key Developments

Kaiser Permanente Plans to Launch Four Clinics in Southern California Target Locations

Kaiser Permanente planed to launch four clinics in Southern California Target locations before the end of the year, staffed with licensed nurses and equipped with teleconference lines for physician consultation. Target said it operates 79 clinics staffed by Target employees, but will be able to include more care options at Kaiser-staffed clinics, such as pediatric care and women's wellness exams, while offering convenient flu shots and other simple offerings.

California Nurses Went on Strike in Front of Kaiser Permanente

As many as 18,000 nurses went on strike and picketed in front of Kaiser Permanente facilities in Northern California to express their concerns about patient-care standards and Ebola. The nurses, who are in the midst of contract negotiations, held red and yellow 'strike for health and safety' picket signs. The two-day strike was expected to affect at least 21 Kaiser hospitals and 35 clinics and last until 7 a.m. November 13, 2014. Union officials said nurses are striking over claims there has been an erosion of patient-care standards in Kaiser facilities for months and that the company has failed to adopt optimal safeguards for Ebola. Kaiser will remain open during the strike, though some elective procedures and routine appointments may be rescheduled.

Kaiser Permanente Names Julie Miller-Phipps as President of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Georgia

Kaiser Permanente announced that Julie Miller-Phipps has been named president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Georgia. Miller-Phipps has been with Kaiser Permanente for more than 30 years and has a track record of demonstrated success throughout her career. She has served most recently as the senior vice president and executive director of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plan in Orange County, Calif. Previously, Miller-Phipps served in several other leadership roles at Kaiser Permanente, including director of Hospital Operations, Continuing Care leader and assistant hospital administrator. In addition to appointing Miller-Phipps to her new role, Kaiser Permanente announced that it will align the Southern California region with the Georgia region, using a proven Kaiser Permanente practice in which a larger region helps enhance and accelerate a smaller region's development and performance.
