Blue Zones Project Approved™
Employers are in a powerful position to help us move more, eat better, and connect. About one-third of our waking hours are spent at work—and fewer jobs today require moderate physical activity, a percentage that has fallen from 50 percent in 1960 to 20 percent currently. The worksites listed below are investing in the health of their people and have earned the designation Blue Zones Project Approved.

Kern Health Systems, known as Kern Family Health Care, was established in 1993 as a managed care health plan, and is the largest health plan in Kern County. Kern Health Systems is committed to providing quality health care to our members. It is important to ensure good health through continuity of care by connecting each member to a provider of their choice within our provider network. Our extensive provider network includes the Traditional and Safety-Net Providers that historically delivered care to Medi-Cal recipients and private providers throughout Kern County and some parts of Los Angeles County. We believe good patient/physician relationships and effective preventive care are true indicators of our success. We also offer a continuum of care that extends beyond doctor visits. With a full range of health education classes and Care/Disease Management programs, we provide quality educational and preventive services to the population we serve. We are able to achieve this through partnerships with our providers and community-based organizations within Kern County. The difference is clear: We hold the standard high when it comes to quality health care for our members.
