Pittsburgh Business Group on Health
Jessica Brooks is CEO and Executive Director for the Pittsburgh Business Group on Health where she leverages education, advocacy, and partnerships to best serve business members and their greater communities. Every day, we tackle challenges head-on to improve employee health, reduce employer health care costs, and secure a brighter future for healthcare. Investigating shortfalls within the health benefits ecosystem has led her to recognize the enormous potential in employer collaboration to make large-scale decisions and ultimately transform the reality of health care. This potential is why she values deliberate, intentional, and empathetic relationships on both a local and national level. These relationships support Jessica’s proactive efforts to address the impacts of accelerated consolidation and heightened competition in the health sector. PBGH is a case study and benchmark for coalitions across the country. With a business model that allows others to leverage PBGH’s innovative infrastructure, we strive to be a resource for other coalitions as health care continues to evolve.
