About SCPMG

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.

Working here
Kern County is unique within SCPMG. With its smaller-town, less urban feel, there is a true sense of family, of being an integral part of something very special. Its the only medical center within SCPMG that can meet as one united group at the same time. Our areas smaller size fosters open dialogue across all levels, offering physicians a voice and enabling constant improvements, small and large. Physicians enjoy the best of two worldsoperating within the stability and support of the Permanente system, yet maintaining the feel of a smaller medical group. New-hires are quickly integrated into the system, for accelerated learning and support. This welcoming spirit goes far beyond the medical center: Physicians spouses and families are actively connected to one another in social activities, formal and informal, and to local culture and activities.
