Our History

In the early 80s, the Pittsburgh business community believed that by working together, they could make a positive impact and drive change in the costs and delivery of health care. Nearly two-dozen companies from across the region formed the Pittsburgh Business Group on Health to address issues facing large and midsize employers in the Pittsburgh region.

While there has been progress in the quality and delivery of health care, rising health care costs continue to challenge most employers. Having influenced changes over the years, PBGH will continue to pursue its mission to promote education, collaboration, and innovation among members, and in the community, to drive and deliver value and quality in health care and benefits.
