A national health and wellness organization as well as the second largest integrated delivery and financing system in America, Highmark Health and our diversified portfolio of businesses employ more than 40,000 talented people who proudly serve millions of Americans in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Our consolidated revenue grew to $18.3 billion as of year-end 2017.
The customers of our companies are the center of everything we do. They include individuals, businesses, and government entities, which rely on us for our extraordinary experience in the health care industry and the exceptional products, services, and solutions we bring to the marketplace.
The Highmark Health organization is focused on getting health care right. We are transforming health care by connecting care and coverage through new models that deliver greater value and a better health care experience to our customers. We are boldly challenging the health care of the past, and reinventing it in new ways that work better now and will be sustainable for generations to come—providing improved access, higher standards of quality and safety, greater affordability and better health outcomes.
Though Highmark Health as an organization is relatively new (2013), some of our affiliates and their predecessors have proud legacies of more than 170 years of providing care and philanthropy in the community. This tradition of giving back, reinvesting and ensuring that our communities remain strong and healthy is deeply embedded in our culture, and we are proud to continue to meet many modern needs within the communities we serve.
