About Us

A Look Inside the Culture at PHMC

Think you know the ins and outs of public health organizations? Well, you can think again as you get to know the Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC).

From its modern office space to its holistic approach to public health services, PHMC is delivering a refreshingly unexpected experience from desk to field.

The experience begins the moment you step out of the elevator and walk through the giant glass doors that welcome you into PHMC headquarters. Bathed in light, the open-concept office space spans multiple floors of 1500 Market Street, all featuring larger-than-life wood staircases, glass conference rooms and splashes of orange, yellow and blue workspaces. Only a stone’s throw away, City Hall practically leaps inside the expansive windows along the east side of the office — a fitting view to represent all of the work PHMC is doing to improve the health of the Greater Philadelphia region. 

The inviting, contemporary aesthetic at PHMC and its affiliated offices is only one way the organization is making an impact in the public health sector. Through its programs, subsidiary organizations and partnerships with the government, foundations, businesses and community-based organizations, PHMC serves as one of the most comprehensive public health resources in the country

With more than 350 programs across the public health sphere, PHMC provides “wrap-around services” for its almost 350,000 clients annually. That means, rather than only treating one specific issue per client, case managers are enabled to dive deeper and analyze the entire spectrum of a client’s lifestyle — from physical and mental health needs to the ecosystem that makes up their home and family — and expose them to a wide breadth of programs and services that can improve their overall life.

As multi-layered company with more than 3,000 employees working within the 350 programs that run across 70 sites in the region, the employee landscape naturally fosters many subcultures, leading to a diverse, dynamic and innovative company culture. Yet no matter where or with whom employees work, whether in the office or out in the field, they are all tied together through PHMC’s core values of collaboration, health equity and access, innovation, diversity and inclusion, growth, development and wellness.

In addition to promoting health and wellness throughout the communities it serves, PHMC also brings its mission-driven works inside its own walls. Fostering an internal culture of wellness and movement, PHMC’s headquarter office is equipped with treadmill workstations, standing desks, and for all, access to an in-house gym complete with group classes and a healthy-options café and plenty of space to gather. 

At its core, PHMC is a sophisticated public health organization where professionals who are passionate about helping people and building healthy communities belong. Always growing, PHMC offers careers across a wide range of programs and departments, all of which enable employees to deliberately channel their passion and make tangible social impact.
