About Us:
Public Health Fund (formerly Philadelphia Health Care Trust), is a foundation that has fostered health care delivery, research and education in the greater Delaware Valley since 1996.

Public Health Fund’s relationship with PHMC ensures a fiscally strong and sound future for the foundation that will positively impact the health of communities in the greater Philadelphia region.
