Kaiser Permanente Welcomes A New Regional President

Kaiser Permanente welcomes a new regional president

The Mid-Atlantic States region of Kaiser Permanente is excited to welcome Ruth Williams-Brinkley as president to replace Kim Horn, who has been promoted within Kaiser Permanente.

Ms. Williams-Brinkley comes to the Mid-Atlantic from the Northwest region of Kaiser Permanente, where she was hired as president in 2017. She brings with her a depth of knowledge and experience in working within a nonprofit health care system, and her leadership as president of the Northwest region makes her especially qualified to take the reins here in the Mid-Atlantic.

She says that her training as a registered nurse still guides her leadership actions and decisions—and that she firmly believes in Kaiser Permanente’s mission to deliver total health to all those in the communities that we serve. She also believes that our integrated care model would serve the country well, if it was widely adopted.

Ms. Williams-Brinkley is a strong patient advocate and her goal for Kaiser Permanente is to always do our best for our members and communities. She will continue her work in positioning Kaiser Permanente as a complete system of care for our members, and in delivering affordable, high-quality care that results in better outcomes.
