Kaiser Permanente: After hours care.

by Andrew MacGregor


Kaiser Permanente: “Tireless” - 60s

Healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente demonstrate their commitment in this measured film. Early rises and working from home are necessary evils for this doctor. After all, his patients rely on him - and he’d rather his efforts weren’t in vain.

It’s a restrained insight into the US clinic’s work ethic. Director Lisa Gunning eschews melodrama or artificial stakes - instead, the protagonist quietly steels himself for the challenges ahead. Compassion and preparation rendered with due care.
