Who We Are
The Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) is one of the nation's first regional collaboratives of medical, business, and civic leaders organized to address healthcare safety and quality improvements.

Its core mission is to show that an unwavering focus on meeting patient needs, and on achieving optimal care outcomes, along with simultaneous dedication to efficiency and zero defects, will create maximum value for the patient and for society.
