Most things in life are smarter, more personalized, and more convenient. But health care? Not so much. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Kaiser Permanente delivers a different kind of health care experience. As one of America’s leading health care providers and nonprofit1 health plans, we offer care and coverage together. Here in Colorado, our care model has helped keep Coloradans healthy for more than 50 years.
In Kaiser Permanente’s integrated health system doctors, pharmacists, and entire care teams collaborate through an electronic health record. This means that our care teams think and work as one, coordinating our members’ care seamlessly across medical specialties and locations, so they don’t have to.
What does personalized, connected care look like in action? Kaiser Permanente members can:
- Choose to get care from more than 1,300 best-in-class Kaiser Permanente doctors who make up one of the largest multispecialty physician groups in Colorado.
- Select a doctor from our affiliated provider network of more than 14,000 providers along the Front Range.2
- Change doctors at any time, for any reason.
- See a doctor, fill a prescription, and get a lab test or X-ray — all under one roof — at most of our 30 Colorado medical offices. Five Kaiser Permanente medical offices are located in southern Colorado — 3 Colorado Springs and 2 in Pueblo.
- Find convenient in-person options for routine preventive care, or specialty, urgent, emergency, and hospital care. Fifteen leading hospitals in southern Colorado are in-network with Kaiser Permanente.
- Access urgent and emergency care anywhere in Colorado, across the U.S., and around the world.
- Get care that’s focused on their total health — body, mind, and spirit. No referral is required for routine mental health services.
- Participate in disease management programs that offer personal coaching and support for chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
- Receive prescriptions at Kaiser Permanente and in-network pharmacies, by mail, or have them delivered through same-day/next-day delivery.3
- Get medical advice at home, at work, or on the go. On-demand video and phone visits are available 24/7 to assess symptoms for many common health concerns.4
- Proactively manage their health and well-being with industry-leading digital tools.
- Transition their care to Kaiser Permanente with the support of a New Member Connect Team that provides guidance in selecting a doctor, transferring prescriptions and medical records, connecting to care for complex medical conditions, and more.
More care options than ever in southern Colorado
Kaiser Permanente is proud to be growing with southern Colorado. Since 2015, we’ve opened 3 new medical offices, including our 25,000-square-foot multispecialty Premier Medical Offices in Colorado Springs. And we recently expanded our care options with more doctors, medical specialties, staff, Saturday imaging services, and virtual care options accessible 24/7.
Earlier this year, Kaiser Permanente announced a $200 million commitment to build and upgrade medical offices in eight communities across the Front Range, including new, state-of-the-art facilities in Lakewood, Parker, and Pueblo. A new, 15,000-square-foot building will replace our current space at 3670 Parker Blvd. in north Pueblo. Along with primary care, pharmacy, laboratory, and imaging services, the Pueblo North Medical Offices will provide rotating specialty care.
