The Institute has awarded designation of Center of Excellence in Culturally Competent Care to KP facilities that are hallmark models of health care delivery to KP's diverse membership. The designation is an internal KP award. Centers develop innovative approaches to delivering clinical care customized to respond to the unique cultural beliefs and health practices of diverse member populations.
