Connected to the Walnut Creek Community
Kaiser Walnut Creek works hand-in-hand with our community to help its people live well, be well and thrive. In addition to developing and implementing environmentally friendly operations throughout our organization, we’ve built strong partnerships with local organizations to launch and maintain an array of health and wellness initiatives for our neighbors, family and friends. We also award community service grants, donate surplus equipment, offer volunteer services, provide educational programs and share medical expertise.
We participate in specialized projects, too. For the Bay Point Garden Project, we funded the purchase of a greenhouse, nutrition training for garden educators and the summer Teen Garden Corps. Our involvement with Operation Access provides free out-patient surgery to low-income, uninsured local residents. We also work with community colleges in the Diablo Service Area to help promote healthy living for students, and partner with non-profit organizations like the YMCA, local Moms’ Clubs and the Monument Fair. We’re a proud sponsor of the award-winning Educational Theater Program, which puts on school performances to address the issues faced by today’s youth. Our other areas of focus include preventing obesity, heart disease, diabetes, strokes and cancer.
