Kaiser Permanente Greater Sacramento
2022 Community Health Snapshot

Greater Sacramento

Serving communities around our Roseville, Sacramento, and South Sacramento medical facilities.

the health of our communities

Our work is informed continually by a comprehensive assessment of community health needs, and our grantmaking focuses on making the greatest impact. We’re proud to support local nonprofits and community partners meeting the critical health needs of underserved populations. Together, we’re creating healthier and more equitable communities.

In 2022, Kaiser Permanente provided more than $2.8 million in charitable contributions to address community health priorities in our Greater Sacramento communities. Read on for examples of our work.

Supporting community mental health

Amid a national mental health professional shortage, we invested in expanding a diverse, well-trained, culturally responsive mental health workforce. We also focused on increasing access to mental health services for low-income and vulnerable populations.

Our funding to increase mental health resources supported student and staff members from San Juan, Sacramento City, Elk Grove, Auburn, and Roseville Unified School Districts. This support helped expand suicide prevention education, support for LGBTQ+ and other vulnerable student populations, student wellness rooms on campus, and online resiliency training for staff and educators managing stress and exhaustion.

Strengthening the health care safety net

We partnered with safety-net hospitals and community health centers to improve care quality for low-income, Medi-Cal, and uninsured patients. Kaiser Permanente clinicians also donated their time and expertise to support these patients.

One example is our funding to the Sacramento Native American Health Center (SNAHC) that supports an online referral platform to help patients with complex social health needs get additional help with issues such as housing, food, or transportation. The funding enables the agency to identify and track whether patients received what they need, improving integration between primary care and case management teams.

Supporting economic opportunities to change lives

Financial health is fundamental to people’s ability to maintain overall health. We supported organizations that work with underserved populations to promote college and career readiness, quality jobs, and diverse small business growth.

We are leading a multiyear effort to expand the construction workforce pipeline providing high-paying careers with benefits for individuals in our community who have barriers to employment.  Our leaders worked with our National Facilities Services to convene construction employers from across the region, identify workforce and skills gaps, and launch the “Promise to Career” scholarship program with local community colleges to help low-income students complete construction certification programs.
