Kaiser Permanente’s membership remained stable, totaling 12.2 million as of September 30, 2018.

Capital Spending

Capital spending of $760 million in the third quarter reflects ongoing investments in upgrading and opening new facilities, as well as in technology.

In the third quarter, KFHP/H opened two new facilities in California, a behavioral health clinic in Sacramento and a hearing center in San Rafael that replaces an older facility in the area. These additions bring our total number of medical offices nationwide to 690, along with 39 hospitals.

Concurrent with new facility openings, we are also undertaking extensive redesigns and remodels of many of our existing campuses to further improve member experience.

Supporting a Sustainable Future

Consistent with our not-for-profit mission, we continue to devote significant resources to improve the health of our communities. We understand that one of the most effective ways to protect the health of the more than 68 million people in the communities we serve is by contributing to healthy environmental conditions. In the third quarter, we finalized an agreementfor a major renewable energy purchase, enabling Kaiser Permanente to achieve its goal of being carbon neutral in 2020.
