LVBCH Celebrates 35 years in Healthcare - See Story on Page 16 of the Lehigh Valley Business Milestones Publication - 2/23/15

Reaching a company anniversary is a great achievement for any business. We are excited to report that the Lehigh Valley Business Coalition on Healthcare (LVBCH) is celebrating our 35th anniversary in 2015.

It all began in 1980, when a few forward-thinking local business leaders met to discuss the actions they could take to address rapidly rising medical costs and the impact on their businesses and their employees. From these humble beginnings, LVBCH has evolved into one of the most successful healthcare focused employer coalitions in the nation.

In recognition of our noteworthy anniversary, LVBCH was featured on page 16 of a special publication by Lehigh Valley Business called "Milestones". To read the LVBCH story, click the image to the left.
