Kaiser Permanente Orange County distributed $602,194 in Community Health grants to local organizations in 2023, which helped improve the health and well-being of residents as part of the not-for-profit organization’s commitment to healthier communities.
Among others, the money was used to provide disadvantaged populations with access to free high-quality health care services; strengthened medical and supportive services for individuals living with and affected by HIV and made available healthy nutritious meals for those who live with food insecurity.
The money also helped homeless adults seeking resources, education and support that will result in a housing placement; improved mental and behavioral health services, as well as grew the number of culturally appropriate and affirming providers that can serve LGBTQIA+ residents in Orange County.
“Kaiser Permanente is committed to creating healthier communities in Orange County,” said Payman Roshan, senior vice president and area manager for Kaiser Permanente Orange County.
“Through our Community Health Program, we’ve invested millions of dollars throughout the years to local organizations whose missions are in close alignment with ours, which aim to improve the quality-of-life in our communities. We’re glad to have positively impacted the lives of many families through the disbursement of our Community Health Grants.”
Kaiser Permanente serves nearly 600,000 members in Orange County and operates hospitals in Anaheim and Irvine. It also operates more than 25 medical offices in the county – including Target Clinics and specialty offices.
