It's about time. For too long, Sidney Garfield, MD, has stood in the giant shadow cast by his more celebrated partner and friend, Henry J Kaiser, the great entrepreneur and industrialist. Mr Kaiser's name and fame live on, mainly in association with the only nonprofit organization ever incorporated by the builder of more than 100 for-profit companies--Kaiser Permanente (KP). But the physician whose extraordinary vision and daring innovations in health care delivery that gave birth to that same organization remains largely unrecognized beyond the select circle of medical historians and the heritage-minded physicians and staff of KP.
