Who We Are

The Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group is the nation's leading group of doctors. With more than 1,700 physicians, we are the largest, coordinated physician group in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Our award-winning Permanente Medicine physicians care exclusively for patients insured by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan. Our health care system is called Kaiser Permanente.

Permanente Medicine physicians produce better health outcomes because unlike other health systems in the United States:

  • We are built and led by physicians
  • Our doctors and staff earn competitive salaries. Our doctors do not earn income based on fees for each individual service they perform
  • We are focused on our patients' long-term health, which means we focus on preventing, diagnosing and treating disease most effectively
  • Our board-certified physicians possess expertise across more than 60 specialties and work together, armed with the nation's most comprehensive electronic health record (EHR) so the entire team of doctors is always up to date with a full picture of each patient's health

​​​​​​​Researchers and staff at the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group support physicians in bringing innovative ideas from the bench, or a brainstorm, to reality for our patients. Working together, they ensure quality of care, offer educational programing and advance best practices through research.
