Welcome Message from our Leadership

On behalf of our entire department and our comprehensive care teams, welcome to Kaiser Permanente East Bay Pediatrics! Since 1957, our department and Kaiser Permanente have prioritized resident education through our unique and diverse learning environment. With dedicated pediatric faculty in outpatient, inpatient, subspecialty, surgical, emergency and critical care disciplines, we are proud of our mission to educate tomorrow’s pediatric providers. Whether at our brand new medical center in Oakland, a member of the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) and the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institutions (NCHRI), or at any of our ambulatory, community, or affiliated sites, our residents and faculty together reflect our passion and drive for excellence in the academic clinical learning environment. Our focus is on collaborative learning driven by inquiry, best practices, and continuous improvement. We are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to our growth and continued success.
