vices, continued at a pace similar to last year at $2.8 billion. Also in 2007, KFHP/H provided an estimated $1 billion to fund community benefit programs, which compares to $807 million in 2006. Kaiser Permanente membership increased by approximately 13,000 members in 2007 to nearly 8.7 million members.

"Our financial performance allows us to continue to fund our care system construction projects, as well as our computer system infrastructure improvements, our care efficiency and process improvements, and our expanded community benefit agenda," said KFHP/H Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, George C.

"In addition, a combination of seismic upgrade projects for our hospitals and a number of facility upgrades and care site improvements are needed to meet our members' expectations for care delivery and service."

In 2007, Kaiser Permanente expanded and opened five new hospitals and seven medical office buildings. The organization's strategic facility program has helped support innovations in patient, environmental, and workplace safety. The organization's construction plan for 2008 includes three new hospital projects, two major hospital tower additions, ten medical office buildings, and four substantial renovations.
