Kelli Tye was born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a genetic heart disease that required medication and cardiac care from a young age. Over the years, her heart health started to decline and she was diagnosed with severe heart failure. After months of meetings and rigorous tests with a Kaiser Permanente transplant team in Los Angeles, Kelli was put at the top of the list for a heart transplant. The transplant gave Kelli the energy to enjoy time with her grandson and do the things she loves.

Kaiser Permanente continues to look to the future, pushing to change the industry from one that is based primarily on fixing health problems to one centered on wellness and achieving total health of mind, body and spirit.
The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine, announced in 2015, will redesign physician education around Kaiser Permanente’s care delivery model — incorporating advanced health information technology, moving beyond the traditional health care setting, acknowledging the importance of collaboration, and promoting diversity and inclusion to deliver health equity.
