Kaiser Permanente is raising the standards for treating heart disease. Our board-certified specialists and multidisciplinary care teams are pioneering new ways to prevent, detect, and treat illnesses of the heart and blood vessels. Our groundbreaking treatment and research is improving the health of our patients and communities today and well into the future.
We're committed to the highest standards of cardiac care
The true benefits of award-winning care
We've been able to reduce serious heart attacks by 62 percent.
If the same practices were adopted across the U.S., over 1 million heart attacks could be prevented.1
Saving lives through prevention
- About 78 million Americans have high blood pressure
- Lifestyle changes in diet, exercise, weight loss, smoking cessation, and limiting alcohol use can help lower blood pressure and prevent serious illness.
- As an industry leader in the prevention of heart disease, Kaiser Permanente can help you make those changes.
A dream team of doctors
Kaiser Permanente is home to one of the largest multi-specialty medical groups in the country, including primary care doctors, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and other medical specialists.
Kaiser Permanente offers the best and the brightest doctors to our members. For example, of all the physicians in California honored by the National Committee of Quality Assurance's Heart/Stroke Physicians Recognition Program, 99 percent are Kaiser Permanente doctors.2 This voluntary program is designed to recognize clinicians who have met standards demonstrating delivery of high-quality care to patients with cardiovascular disease and/or stroke.
Our researchers are working to save countless lives with a new way of looking at heart attack and stroke prevention — using groundbreaking technology so they can see how the body might respond to disease and treatments.
