Kaiser Permanente has renewed its partnership with USS Midway Museum to support programs, services, STEM education, and exhibits for the next two years. 

Entering its 19th year of partnership, and as Midway’s first marketing partner, Kaiser Permanente will continue as a naming rights sponsor of Midway University classroom #4 and the exclusive presenting sponsor of Midway’s Sick Bay and Battle Dressing Station exhibits. They are also the supporting sponsor of Midway’s public-facing, patriot-themed special events, a Captain-level sponsorship of the Midway American Patriot Award Gala, and a presenting sponsor of Midway’s STEM education onboard field trip programs.

Kaiser Permanente also continues as the exclusive presenting sponsor of Midway’s “I Served” program that celebrates U.S. military veterans who visit Midway by presenting them an adhesive badge that acknowledges their service.

“The Midway Museum is an invaluable asset to San Diego, and has been instrumental in building a stronger, healthier community for us all,” said Rodger Dougherty, senior director of public affairs and communications for Kaiser Permanente San Diego. “Kaiser Permanent is honored to continue our long-standing partnership with the Midway, in support of the museum’s mission to preserve the historic ship, honor the legacy of those who serve, educate and inspire future generations, and entertain the many visitors the museum hosts each year.”

“Midway continues to deliver quality STEM education programs for students and inspiring programs for Midway visitors and those who serve in part because of Kaiser Permanente’s generous support,” said Craig Fisher, Midway’s Director of partnership marketing. “We are so grateful for their partnership and their commitment to Midway and the San Diego community.”

The organization that is now Kaiser Permanente began at the height of the Great Depression with an inventive young surgeon and a 12-bed hospital in the middle of the Mojave Desert. Today, Kaiser Permanente health plan membership is more than 12 million members in eight states and the District of Columbia. Locally, Kaiser Permanente cares for more than 630,000 San Diegans.
