The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s HealthChoices program and the creation of CBH in February 1997 provided all of us with the opportunity to improve and expand mental health and addiction services for people in need. Achieving this aim requires a partnership between those managing public resources and those whose clinical expertise and compassion can make a real difference to the lives of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens. In pursuing that goal, we remain committed to playing a key role in your success, as you have played a key role in ours.
CBH will meet the behavioral health needs of the Philadelphia community by assuring access, quality, and fiscal accountability through being a high performing, efficient, and nimble organization driven by quality, performance, and outcomes.
We envision CBH as a diverse, innovative, and vibrant organization in which we are empowered to support wellness, resiliency, and recovery for all Philadelphians.
CBH celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017. To honor many years of providing services to Philadelphians through invaluable partnerships, notably our collaboration with our providers, we published our CBH 20th Anniversary Report. The Report recounts the initial creation of CBH and highlights significant aspects of the organization’s growth , transformation, and successes of the last 20 years.
Our annual reports provide a clear overview of CBH’s work and priorities, as well as the investments that have been made demonstrating the ongoing commitment to help members lead healthier lives. These reports highlight CBH’s continued commitment to the objectives of Pennsylvania’s HealthChoices program ensuring access, quality, and cost-effectiveness in health care services.
