Kaiser Permanente profit slips to $635 million in September quarter
San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente’s revenue rose to $13.2 billion in the September quarter, up from $12.5 billion a year earlier in the same quarter. But Kaiser’s profit fell to $635 million in the third quarter, down from $803 million in the third quarter of 2012. The costs of selling its operations in Ohio hurt profits in the quarter, with the health care giant losing $124 million from “discontinued operations.” A year earlier it lost just $26 million from discontinued operations.
