The philosophy and beliefs of Southern California Permanente Medical Group are rooted in the founding principles of the Kaiser Permanente integrated managed care partnership established in 1945 between physicians and the Kaiser Foundation. That word - partnership - is important. We are a physician-led partnership with a mission to transform the practice of medicine.
At SCPMG, we continue to empower our providers to lead. We understand that our success is made possible through the skills, ambition and leadership of our physicians and professional staff. We invest in our physicians and staff through continuing education, training, technology support and a nation-leading Physician Wellness program. And to further the legacy of our philosophy we are investing in the future: the Permanente Medical School - scheduled to open in 2019 - will train future generations of doctors to practice responsible, ethical, collaborative and fulfilling medicine.
We continually improve the health and wellness of our patients, our physicians, and our communities with our equation of responsible, ethical and effective care.
Join us as we continue to deliver The Answer to Healthcare in America.
About the area
With its medical center northwest of Los Angeles and its scope reaching as far north as Ventura, the Woodland Hills/Ventura County service area offers an impressive range of experiences. Great weather enables year-round surfing, hiking, golf, and other outdoor sports. And beyond our area are Los Angeles to the south and Santa Barbara to the north, for world-class dining, entertainment, and cultural activities.
The Woodland Hills/Ventura County area is geographically diverse--reaching from the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles to Ventura County along the Pacific Ocean. Our area offers both the urban/suburban experience of the Woodland Hills Medical Center and the distinctly bi-cultural, small-town feel of the Ventura County medical office. Yet, at our core is one culture--characterized by the partnering and teamwork of our medical staff, the high level of physician engagement, and the focus on maintaining a highly evolved model of care. A family medicine residency program at the medical center adds an academic vibrancy. Strong emphasis is placed on wellness and interaction, with formal and informal events, potlucks, and other social activities. A robust on-boarding program ensures that new hires can quickly integrate, professionally and personally, forming lasting bonds and furthering the area's collegial environment.
