Creating a Unified Brand for Permanente Medical Group
Permanente Medical Group leaders set out to create a unified brand for its eight medical groups around the country, the health system’s physician leaders went on the road to engage with physicians and patients at every single location. The findings have enabled the medical groups to be developed as an “ingredient brand” to bring value to the overall Kaiser Permanente brand.
As an integral part of one of the nation’s largest integrated health systems, the Permanente Medical Groups have a tall order to fill when it comes to defining the common thread that connects the eight medical groups that include nearly 23,000 physicians spread out over eight states and the District of Columbia.
“We started this major rebranding effort back in 2015 and, as part of this process, we wanted to identify the unique characteristics of Permanente Medicine [the new brand representing the medical groups] and determine how they integrated with the master brand,” explains Stephen M. Parodi, MD, who serves as the associate executive director of The Permanente Medical Group in Northern California.
“With an increasingly cluttered health category, it’s more important than ever that our strong Kaiser Permanente brand and the promise of Permanente Medicine are interwoven and demonstrate our organization’s values and high quality of care,” adds Christine Paige, chief marketing executive of Kaiser Permanente.
