Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health

Established in 2012, the Greater Philadelphia Business Coalition on Health (GPBCH) is a membership organization open to any employer that is corporately based or that has a significantly employed population in our service area. The Coalition’s service area includes the Philadelphia five-county region (Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware Counties), the State of Delaware, and Southern New Jersey (Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, Salem, Cumberland, Atlantic and Cape May Counties). GPBCH also offers affiliate memberships to organizations that do not participate as employers but have an interest in supporting GPBCH’s mission.

Our mission is to increase the value of health benefit spending for the region’s employers. We do this by improving workforce and community health, increasing healthcare quality and safety, and reducing healthcare costs. The Coalition represents employer interests in working with health plans, healthcare providers, benefits consultants, suppliers and other system stakeholders to address population health priorities and to ensure that when healthcare is needed it is accessible, affordable, equitable, high-quality, and safe. For more information, please visit our website: https://www.gpbch.org/.
