"Kaiser Permanente is committed to our social mission to improve the health and well-being of the communities in which we serve," said Maggie Pierce, Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center's executive director, in a statement. "This is realized in many ways, most notably, through our work with local agencies and our community benefit grant program that enables us to address some of the health and social issues facing our communities."
