Welcome to HBA Philadelphia, just like the city of Philadelphia, with its unique and individual character, the Philadelphia chapter and its leadership embody the strong spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration. The chapter was founded in 2006 and achieved 1,000 members in the Delaware Valley and South Jersey areas by August 2010. Our leaders are diverse and bring something unique to the chapter while working closely and collaborating as a team to deliver meaningful offerings to existing and potential chapter members. We were also recognized as Philadelphia’s #1 Networking Organization for the enhancement of women’s careers in healthcare by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
In Philadelphia, we recognize that the "business of healthcare" is wide-ranging, interconnected and covers the entire healthcare continuum. Philadelphia healthcare includes biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device organizations; healthcare delivery systems, hospital networks and premier academic institutions; medical communications and education; insurance providers, payers and more. Our chapter focuses on the strengths and unique character of Philadelphia, including a strong spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship, collaboration and leadership.
We believe in programming that helps members stay on top of trends impacting the business of healthcare and leveraging the pre-eminent thought leaders in our region. HBA Philadelphia strives to provide a unique and balanced array of topics for our special events ranging from key HBA mission topics such as gender parity in the real-world to relevant day-to-day industry topics such as patient centricity and big data in healthcare to interacting with and receiving first-hand career advice from female C-suite executives and other women-owned business leaders.
