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
Covering the East San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, the Panorama City service area is a natural gateway for both outdoor adventure and urban experiences. The nearby 5 Freeway can take you to Los Angeles and other major cities, and the Burbank Airport is close by. Affordable housing is also a main feature of our area. The Los Padres and Angeles National Forests and the San Gabriel Mountains--famous for their wilderness areas, camping, hiking, and horseback riding--are a short drive away.
At Panorama City there is a deep focus on continuous variety, learning, and new challenges. To keep things fresh and enhance outcomes, our leadership takes an active role in connecting physicians with their interests, whether in specialties, initiatives at the medical center, community involvement, or in growth and leadership opportunities. A culture of kindness has created a warmth among "Pan City" physicians; there is a distinct joy and gratification in coming to work. This collegiality is a constant: due to our smaller size, physicians are able to meet each Friday, discussing new ideas and how to improve services. New hires are quickly integrated and supported, both professionally and personally. Taken together, Pan City's attributes have enabled a cohesive, high-functioning team that expertly serves a diverse--and very appreciative--patient population.
