What are Kaiser Permanente premier hospitals?

As a Kaiser Permanente member, you probably already know the value of “coordinated care”

Your doctor works closely with specialists, pharmacies, labs, therapists, and many other professionals — all up-to-the-minute on your health — for a better care experience.

When you need inpatient or outpatient hospital care, we’ve chosen award-winning hospitals to team with for coordinating your care. These hospitals, located throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC,  are our “premier hospitals.”1

How we work together with premier hospitals
As a patient at a premier hospital, your care will be guided around the clock by Permanente doctors who exclusively care for our members at that hospital. Your Permanente doctor and specialists work hand in hand with hospital staff and physicians. Permanente doctors are also on-site 24/7. They have your medical record on hand, right in the hospital, where they also keep it up to date as your care evolves. With Kaiser Permanente on-site, your care is coordinated within the hospital and with your primary care physician, ensuring the smooth transition of your care before, during, and after your hospitalization.
How we choose premier hospitals

To qualify, each hospital has been carefully evaluated — and is regularly reassessed — for the quality of care, comfort, and services it provides. All premier hospitals are evaluated by independent third-party safety and quality rankings, and offer top-rated, award-winning care.
