Group Health signs agreement to join Kaiser Permanente

We're proud to announce that we have signed an agreement to be acquired by Kaiser Permanente, a nationally recognized health care leader. The acquisition is subject to approval by voting membership and regulatory approval.

Kaiser Permanente shares our values and a philosophy that focuses on members' total health. With this change, you can continue to rely on outstanding physicians and care teams. You can also look forward to improvements and financial advantages that come from being part of the larger Kaiser Permanente organization. Together we can better serve our members and our mission for years to come.

Final results of a mail-in ballot vote by eligible voting members will be announced when the Special Meeting of the Membership resumes on March 12. You can view the results of the advisory vote that took place on Jan. 30.


We know you probably have questions. The resources below provide more information, help clarify the process that will take place, and explain the role our voting members play in the decision.
