California officials have fined healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente $4 million for problems related to patient access to mental health services. The fine announced Tuesday stems from deficiencies the California Department of Managed Health Care identified in March that were found during a routine medical survey. This marks the agency's second-largest enforcement action after a $10 million fine against Anthem Blue Cross in 2008 related to improper policyholder cancellations. "The Department's actions are a result of both the seriousness of the deficiencies and the failure of Kaiser to promptly correct them," said Brent Barnhart, director of the Department of Managed Health Care.

In an effort to address the concerns and questions of new parents, Kaiser Permanente announced the creation of a new "Great Starts" program. Inevitably, most new mothers have questions or issues after they leave the hospital and are faced with caring for their babies the first week, said Linda Hanna, a lactation specialist and maternal child health educator. With Great Starts, those issues are addressed by professionals, and the women and their babies are physically examined.

We were very pleased to find out in Andrea Adelson's article on Disneyland's Innoventions exhibit that our pregnant mannequins are so popular with children--but we do wish you'd told your readers they are part of the Kaiser Permanente exhibit ("Close to the Future," Oct. 8). Kaiser Permanente has put a lot of time and energy into making health care careers attractive to children and we chose the content of our Innoventions display to help further that effort. The other components, including the walk-through pulsing heart, were likewise designed to attract, inform and interest children.

About 110 health care workers and support staff members walked off the job at Kaiser Permanente's Panorama City and Woodland Hills medical centers Monday. The purpose of the one-day, symbolic walkout, which involved less than 1% of Kaiser Permanente's 12,000 workers in Southern California, was to protest budget cuts that have increased workloads, said union spokeswoman Joyce Moscato. A hospital spokeswoman said the walkout would have little effect.

Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills has agreed to donate $44,000 to the Pierce College nursing program, allowing more students to enroll this year, a company spokeswoman said Monday. Pierce College officials were considering reducing by a quarter the number of new nursing students admitted for the spring semester because of state budget cuts. The donation, which will cover the cost of a nursing instructor, will forestall those cuts, Kaiser spokeswoman Pamela Spencer said.
