MaryAnna Trutanich, RHU®, CHRS®
MaryAnna began her career with Kaiser Permanente back in 1991 as a pharmacy clerk, working the 6 pm-12 am shift. That position lasted about 8 months and she wanted out.
Her next journey with Kaiser Permanente was at the Appointment Center in Harbor City. This was the best experience she had in all her positions while at Kaiser Permanente. It was such a tight-knit family; it took one person to leave, and the domino effect occurred.
MaryAnna then became the Employee Services Specialist at Bellflower Medical Center. She developed and implemented all employee recognition programs, the Employee Club, and the Annual Service Award Program. She also managed the Summer Youth Program, hiring 25 students to work in various departments, and held weekly classes. Read more.
