VACAVILLE — Kaiser Permanente has been chosen by the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce as its 2013-14 Business of the Year.
Its community commitment through leadership and involvement, and its community partnerships made the chamber’s decision an easy one, said Mark Creffield, the chamber’s president, in a press release.
According to the chamber’s press release, Kaiser has been a big supporter of the chamber for many years – hosting and participating in functions, contributing to the financial goals of local businesses and encouraging employees to be active in the chamber.
Max Villalobos, hospital administrator for Kaiser in both Napa and Solano counties, said Kaiser has also felt support from the Vacaville community since the Vacaville Medical Center opened in 2009 and again when it was designated a Level II trauma center in 2013.
“And then again just a month or so later when we opened our Family Birth Center, also at our Vacaville Medical Center,” Villalobos wrote in press materials. “The support of the community – especially the business community – was crucial to both of these initiatives.”
Kaiser will be honored May 2 at the chamber’s annual dinner.
