#LIVINGPROOF

The difference you can make when you're all for health.

Staying healthy with services closer to home

The Highmark Caring PlaceFrom women's health and cancer treatment to trauma centers and mobile health units, our members have access to the services they need most.

Our communities are stronger with the programs we help support such as sponsoring walks and school vegetable gardens. And those with special and individual needs are helped through programs such as Variety® — the Children's Charity's "My Bike" and The Highmark Caring Place.

Healthier residents are living proof that a health plan can have a positive influence on its communities.

For the first time in five years, members get care close to home

Our members who lived near Braddock had no access to urgent care in their community. When Highmark supported the construction of the Braddock Urgent Care Center, they gained access to critical services right in their community for the first time in five years.

In the first 12 months, 4,000 area residents received care, close to home. See the story.

Welcoming 1,000+ babies

Women living near Allegheny Health Network's Jefferson Hospital had to leave their immediate community for access to women's healthcare services. But Highmark helped deliver a new women's health center and labor and delivery unit — the first one built in the region in 34 years.

Women in this area got access to a compassionate, skilled medical staff who welcomed 1,000 babies in just 17 months — twice as many births as expected.

These babies are living proof that care delivered closer to home brings healthy families. See their story.

Eastern Pittsburgh communities get new clinical services

Critically injured and ill patients receive the highest level of care in a new level II trauma unit at Forbes Hospital. Residents can now have peace of mind that emergency care is nearby with the help of Highmark's support. See the story.

Getting health care on the road

Our most at-risk members can get an annual exam and connect with a local primary care doctor through Highmark's Health Care on the Go mobile clinic.

Highmark serves the areas where seniors and other members are not getting the health care that they need. The mobile clinic makes it easier to get care to the people who need it most. See the story.

Teamwork and caring support bring healthier, happier lives

  • Medicare members stay independent with help from Highmark's PALS (People Able to Lend Support) program. PALS volunteers help older adults and their caregivers by running errands, driving to doctors' appointments, visiting them at home and celebrating milestone birthdays. See Irma's story.
  • Children with disabilities experience the freedom and joy of riding a bike on their own through Variety's® "My Bike" program. Highmark is proud to be a founding sponsor of this program, which gives children adaptive bikes built just for them. And families find a whole community of support. See their story.
  • Children and teens grieving the death of a loved one support each other at The Highmark Caring Place. This unique program gives them a chance to talk about their feelings with other young people who have experienced a similar loss.
