About Group Health Cooperative

Group Health is a consumer-governed, nonprofit health care system that coordinates care and coverage. Based in Seattle, Group Health and its subsidiary health carriers, Group Health Options, Inc. and KPS Health Plans, serve more than 600,000 residents of Washington state and Idaho. More than 70 percent of members receive care in Group Health-owned medical facilities.

Group Health was opened in 1947 by a community coalition dedicated to making quality health care available and affordable. Today it is one of the few health care organizations in the country governed by consumers rather than internal executives.

In addition to its research arm, Group Health Research Institute, Group Health also includes Group Health Physicians medical group and Group Health Foundation. These organizations—and the staff members who support them—share a common purpose to transform health care by working together to improve the care and well-being of members, patients, and communities.
