Jack Cochran, MD, Executive Director Of The Permanente Federation At Kaiser Permanente, Elected To Additional Six-Year Term

OAKLAND, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Cochran, MD, executive director of The Permanente Federation at Kaiser Permanente, has been elected to a second term by the executive medical directors of the eight Permanente Medical Groups. The Permanente Federation fosters learning and collaboration among the more than 17,000 physicians of those eight medical groups across the nation who provide care to Kaiser Permanente's 9 million members.

"It is a pleasure to congratulate Jack on his second term as executive director of The Permanente Federation," said Geoffrey Sewell, MD, FACP, chairman of the Federation executive committee, and president and executive medical director of the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group. "Jack's deep knowledge of health care, coupled with his compassion and invaluable experience, have made working with him a privilege. I look forward to our ongoing partnership in support of Kaiser Permanente's mission to provide high-quality, affordable health care services that improve the health and lives of our members and communities."

"I am delighted and honored to continue working with the leadership at The Permanente Federation and the Permanente Medical Groups," Dr. Cochran said. "It is extremely gratifying that we have made tremendous progress in our work to advance clinical quality and create a true learning organization. Our excellent results deserve celebration, but it must also be the basis for ongoing learning and acceleration of our performance. Excellent is not good enough."

Dr. Cochran added, "I am also proud to have contributed to the strengthened partnership between The Permanente Federation and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plans that has led to many great improvements in patient care. The relationship with Kaiser Permanente's chairman and CEO, George Halvorson, has been productive and I look forward to working with his successor, Bernard J. Tyson, on the major health care challenges ahead."

"Jack and I both believe high-quality health care can be affordable and Kaiser Permanente can lead the way," said Bernard J. Tyson, president and recently named next chairman and CEO. "I look forward to working with Jack and ensuring that Kaiser Permanente helps to build a better future of health care."
