Imelda DaconesWelcome to Northwest Permanente!

We are the largest medical group in the Northwest. Our team is made up of more than 1,500 of the best and brightest physicians and clinicians, as well as sub-specialists in virtually every area of medical and surgical practice. Our integrated health care model, chronic disease management programs, electronic medical record system, and state-of-the-art clinical support tools provide the perfect foundation for our physicians to practice medicine at the highest level.

We pride ourselves on attracting and retaining the very best physicians in the country. Our focus is immersed in providing fulfilling careers, sustainable practices, and ensuring our physicians enjoy the benefits of a large, stable medical group. Our physicians enjoy world class benefits and competitive compensation. There are numerous opportunities to broaden skills, deepen clinical expertise, pursue sub-specialty interests, participate in the governance of our medical group, and pursue leadership opportunities.

Kaiser Permanente (KP) is an organization which is made up of three different entities:

· Northwest Permanent, PC (the medical group)

Our integrated structure is designed to support our core mission, as well as our innovations in Virtual Care and Total Health. For over 70 years, Kaiser Permanente Northwest has delivered the highest quality, most innovative care in Oregon and Southwest Washington. We are the established leaders in clinical excellence, preventative medicine, informatics, teaching, and research.

As an organization completely oriented to prevention, excellence at every level, and evidenced-based medicine, no one is better equipped to tackle the healthcare crisis in this country. While our sights are set on the future, we continue to learn from our history of success and innovation. We embrace the time honored traditions of professionalism, self-governed group practice, and an abiding love for our patients and our calling as healers.
