For the six months ended June 30, 2013, total operating revenue was $26.7 billion, compared to $25.3 billion for the same period in 2012. Year-to-date operating income was $1.2 billion, compared to $931 million for the same period in 2012. Net non-operating income was $363 million in the first six months of this year, compared to $353 million in the same period last year. Year-to-date net income was $1.5 billion, compared to $1.3 billion for the same period in 2012. First half of the year results are frequently higher than second half results, due to timing of revenues and expenses.

Capital spending in the second quarter of 2013 was $769 million, compared to $752 million in the same quarter in 2012.

For the first six months of 2013, capital spending was $1.5 billion, compared to $1.6 billion in the same period last year. KFH/HP's capital spending reflects our continued investments in technology and facilities to support our members' needs and deliver high-quality care. This includes the cost of rebuilding four hospitals to comply with California earthquake standards.

Kaiser Permanente membership has grown by 78,066 members since December 31, 2012, totaling more than 9.1 million members as of June 30, 2013.

"Results in the first six months of the year are often stronger due in part to operating revenues being relatively steady while costs rise throughout the year," said Kathy Lancaster, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Our operating results, coupled with a sound investment strategy, allow us to continue to make investments in care delivery programs, facilities and technology to support our members, patients and the communities we serve."

Kaiser Permanente continues its leadership in providing new and innovative ways to improve care and the total health of its members and patients. Kaiser Permanente members can access My Health Manager, Kaiser Permanente's personal health record, to manage their personal health information online. Currently, kp.org serves over 4.3 million members who are registered online.

"Our performance for the first half of the year allows us to continue to make high-quality care affordable and to create healthy communities," said Bernard J. Tyson, chief executive officer. "We have made tremendous progress on advancing quality, and we are focused on impacting affordability for our members and for America."

As not-for-profit charitable organizations, KFH/HP devote their resources to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. In the first six months of 2013, KFH/HP funded approximately 950 grants and donations nationwide.
