Nationally recognized care​

Quality care starts with quality doctors

When it comes to your health, you want to know you’re getting the care you need not only from a team that’s dedicated to your wellness, but from the entire health system that supports it. Kaiser Permanente has one of the largest multispecialty medical groups in the country — and the 1,700+ physicians in the region who provide your care are backed by that breadth of skill, knowledge, and experience. 

Kaiser Permanente only recruits physicians from the top medical schools in the country, and even then, just one in ten applicants becomes a Permanente physician. Every Permanente doctor is board-certified,1 and their skills and manner with patients are rigorously vetted before joining the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group. If you need more reason to feel confident in the quality of care you’re getting, consider this:

  • Hundreds of Permanente physicians recognized annually as Top Doctors2
  • Top-rated plan in MD, DC, and VA3
  • 5 out of 5 star Medicare rating 10 years in a row (2013–2022)4
  • Kaiser Permanente as a national enterprise is rated the #1 health care company overall by Insure.com5

Additionally, recent research by The Permanente Journal shows that Kaiser Permanente members have significantly longer life expectancy compared to the national average. Members’ life expectancy at birth ranged from 84.6–85.2 years, 6 years longer than the national average of 78.6–78.9 years.6

Doctors who collaborate on your care

Kaiser Permanente’s integrated system connects your doctors and care team to one another, so they all know your health history and can provide care that meets your specific needs. This collaboration increases speed of diagnosis and gets you to treatment much sooner.

Preventive measures that keep you in control of your life

Frequent monitoring and early detection are key to better outcomes. Kaiser Permanente is a national leader in breast cancer screenings with 84% of members screened. We lead the nation in percentage of members screened for colon cancer at 82% and for cervical cancer at 88%, and we’re also tops in the region with controlling blood pressure among eligible members at 77%.7

A commitment to delivering care excellence

Serious or ongoing health matters typically need specialized care. Kaiser Permanente has board-certified doctors in over 50 specialties and sub-specialties, so no matter what your needs are you’ll get care that’s made just for your condition—and for you.

When you have a chronic illness like diabetes or high blood pressure, your care team works with you to manage your condition with frequent screening measures and advanced treatments. Remote monitoring, 24/7 phone advice, and routine video checkups8 make it easy for you and your doctor to stay on top of your health—so you can stay in control of your life.

And if you’re at risk for heart disease, your team can diagnose and treat you on the same day with rapid access cardiac testing—and get to the heart of the matter right away.
