AmeriHealth Caritas Building New HQ in Newtown Square, PA

by Steve Lubetkin,
AmeriHealth Caritas, a national leader in Medicaid managed care and other health care solutions for those most in need, will expand its corporate headquarters and create two new campuses in the Philadelphia area.

“AmeriHealth Caritas is committed to investing in our Pennsylvania presence and will continue to contribute to the state’s growth and development with jobs, partnerships and investments,” says Paul Tufano, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our office expansion also aligns with our aim to be the employer of choice by creating work environments for our associates where they’re inspired to collaborate, innovate and achieve their fullest potential.”
The new location at Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square, PA, will provide AmeriHealth Caritas with approximately 378,000 square feet of newly constructed space and will accommodate approximately 2,000 employees at full capacity. Groundbreaking is scheduled to begin in late 2018 with an anticipated completion date of early 2021.

“We are thrilled that AmeriHealth Caritas will be expanding to Ellis Preserve,” says Dan DiLella, president and CEO, Equus Capital Partners. “They are a world-class company with a mission that matters and we feel very fortunate to welcome them to our campus, which is home to some of the region’s most distinguished employers.”

AmeriHealth Caritas is also planning a complete rebuild of its current location at Airport Business Center, Essington, PA, which will be the location for several key business units and the company’s operational functions. The renovated Essington location will provide 373,000 square feet of space and will accommodate approximately 2,000 employees at full capacity. Construction and renovation at Airport Business Center, owned and managed by Conshohocken, PA-based Keystone Property Group, will begin in 2021 with renovations expected to be completed by early 2022.
“As the anchor tenant at Airport Business Park, AmeriHealth Caritas is a longstanding and valued partner of Keystone’s, and we are extremely excited that they are expanding their operations in both Essington and their new location in Newtown Square,” says William Glazer, CEO of Keystone Property Group. “As one of the Philadelphia area’s major employers, the company’s success is vital to the entire region, and we look forward to creating a new, state-of-the-art venue where it can continue its tremendous success for years to come.”

AmeriHealth Caritas was among the first Medicaid managed care organizations to develop an integrated model of care, which addresses the physical health, behavioral health and pharmacy needs of Medicaid members in an integrated, holistic way in order to achieve the highest quality outcomes.

Over the past two years, the company conducted numerous studies to determine the best location for its new corporate headquarters, and space for Operations and Information Systems. The company analyzed considerations such as where associates live, access to transportation and future growth of the organization.

AmeriHealth Caritas’ focus on excellence will be reflected in the two campuses based on findings from these studies. Associates will collaborate in inspiring spaces, supported by amenities that will bring out their best work.

Amenities at both sites are anticipated to include:

Access to daycare resources
Fitness centers
A range of unique and healthy food service options
Access to public transportation
Hotel access
