Our facilities in California are open

We’ve been notified that the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW), which is in negotiations with Kaiser Permanente, is conducting a 7-day strike. It will begin at 6 a.m. on Monday, January 12 and end at 6 a.m. on Monday, January, 19, 2015.

NUHW represents fewer than 5,000 of Kaiser Permanente’s 175,000 employees. They include:

  • Mental health employees throughout the state
  • Some optical workers in Northern California
  • Some health care professionals in Southern California

Our first priority is the safety and care of our members and patients

We’ve taken steps to operate as usual during the strike, so you’ll continue to get high-quality care from a team of experienced health care professionals.

Kaiser Permanente facilities will remain open, including our hospitals, emergency departments, urgent care departments, pharmacies, and laboratories.

During the strike, some nonurgent appointments and elective procedures may need to be rescheduled. Any patients who are affected will be contacted by an appointment team member first.

In Northern California only, optical sales for eyeglass lenses, frames, and contact lenses may be closed or have limited hours at some locations. All other services at our optical centers will be open as usual.
