Kaiser Permanente's third-quarter profits soared 11.4 percent to $634 million and its quarterly revenue jumped 5.7 percent to $11.1 billion. Enrollment also increased by 59,000, bringing total customers to about 8.6 million, according to KFMB-TV.
Operating income for the quarter totaled $366 million, up nearly 9 percent from last year's $336 million. Net non-operating income of $268 million jumped 15 percent from 2009’s third-quarter total of $233 million, reflecting Wall Street's recent hot streak. That left net income of $634 million, compared to $569 million a year earlier, the San Francisco Business Times reports.
