Sherry Fung-Sakita, MD

Assistant Chair of Chiefs, Adult and Family Medicine, KP Napa-Solano

“Dr. Fung-Sakita’s unwavering commitment to excellence and her exemplary leadership qualities make her a shining example of dedication and innovation in medicine.”
- Christopher Walker, MD, Physician-in-Chief, KP Napa-Solano

Sherry Fung-Sakita, MD, was a founding faculty member and curriculum director of the first Family Medicine residency program in KP Northern California, at KP Vallejo. Ultimately, as Chief of Adult and Family Medicine (AFM) at KP Vallejo, she led a transformative effort around culture and leadership development that resulted in region-topping physician wellness scores and retention rates. This work translated into a “red-carpet” recruiting program that made KP Vallejo a destination for AFM physician candidates.

In addition, she led a multidisciplinary team that streamlined a lower-back pain management program which originated from KP Southern California, using human-centered design to make it more cost-effective, decrease the clinical burden on AFM physicians, improve the patient care experience, and lower the use of imaging and consultation services.

Most recently, she developed and leads an annual, yearlong professional development curriculum at KP Napa-Solano not only to encourage women physicians into leadership roles, but also to create a community to support them. This work has expanded to weekend retreat sessions, mentoring, and professional development for more women physicians.

Regionally Dr. Fung-Sakita serves as Assistant Chair of AFM Chiefs and spearheads opportunities for AFM leaders to expand their leadership skills, learn the business side of our organization, and maximize the recruitment success of primary care physicians across The Permanente Medical Group.
