ABC News

Kaiser Permanente, the Oakland, Calif.-based system that operates 38 hospitals as well as its own health plan, continues to grow as it adds new members.

The integrated delivery network has added 524,000 members since Dec. 31, bringing the total to 10.1 million members. Kaiser does not otherwise break out the number of admissions.

The combination of new members as well as a laser focus on managing its expenses led to a small uptick in its second-quarter financial performance. Kaiser reported an operating margin of 5% for the period compared with 4.7% in the second quarter of 2014.
