Group Health Cooperative to join Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente and Group Health Cooperative announced today they have signed a definitive agreement for Kaiser Permanente to acquire Seattle-based Group Health. The combination will advance the growth of the integrated model for health care and coverage together and expand Kaiser Permanente's reach, adding nearly 590,000 members.

Kaiser Permanente and Group Health, both founded in the mid-1940s, have long shared a vision for health care in America that brings quality care and coverage at affordable prices. They have worked together to share best clinical practices, helped to shape health care policies and developed non-profit innovations. They also have allowed each health plan's members to receive care while visiting the other's service areas for nearly two decades.

Pending approvals by Group Health's voting membership and regulatory entities, the organization would become fully integrated with Kaiser Permanente and operate as a new, eighth region. Like other Kaiser Permanente regions, the Washington region will be managed locally while taking full advantage of Kaiser Permanente's national resources. Washington would join Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Mid-Atlantic States (VA, MD, DC), Northern California, Northwest (Oregon/Southern Washington), and Southern California enabling the combined organization to service communities along the West Coast, from San Diego to Seattle. There will be no immediate changes to the coverage and care currently provided by either organization.
