HEMET – Dr. Kali P. Chaudhuri, founder and chairman of KPC Health, was recently named the 53rd annual Book of Golden Deeds award winner by the Hemet-San Jacinto Exchange Club.
Awarded every year since 1967, the Book of Golden Deeds honors members of the San Jacinto and Hemet communities who give their time and talents to make their community a better place to live and work.
Hundreds of community members, stakeholders, elected officials, friends and family members gathered at the Soboba Resort and Casino Events Center Thursday, Dec. 5, to honor Chaudhuri for his many contributions to the surrounding community, including KPC Health’s Hemet and Menifee Global Medical Centers.
“I love Hemet and the future is bright for this community,” Chaudhuri said. “To me, Hemet is heaven. I came here more than 30 years ago to start my medical practice and never left. I raised my family here, built my business here, and made Hemet my home. There is still much work to be done, and I look forward to helping in every way that I can.”
KPC Health owns and operates a group of integrated health care delivery systems consisting of acute care hospitals, Independent Physician Associations, medical groups and various fully integrated multispecialty medical facilities.
