Last summer, Penn Medicine Academy (PMA) launched the Onboarding website, which has been helping to enhance the experience of being a new employee. As soon as employees go through New Employee Orientation (NEO), this comprehensive online resource is right there to help them through their first days, first weeks and first months at Penn Medicine.

But did you know that Penn Medicine offers a wealth of “discounts and deals” as an added bonus to being a health system employee? From entertainment to fitness – we want to help make your life easier to manage and more enjoyable – and make working at Penn Medicine even better.

“Not only does Penn Medicine provide a generous benefits package to employees, but these additional discounted programs and services can be helpful in so many aspects of everyday life,” said Kerry Standeven, Workforce Development Consultant in Penn Medicine Academy. “We make sure to highlight the Deals and Discounts in NEO so employees can start enjoying these perks as soon as possible.”

Here are just some of the great deals and discounts you’ll find:

  • Take advantage of special offers for buying a new car, enrolling in a new cell phone plan, enhanced benefits for child care, or emergency travel services through the UPHS All Employee Discount Programs.
  • If you are on an Independence Blue Cross (IBC) health plan, save on health and wellness products, event tickets, and fitness centers. IBC Healthy Lifestyles Solutions will reimburse you up to $150 for your fitness center fees, if you have joined an approved weight management program, or for enrolling in programs to help you quit tobacco.
  • Enjoy a 10% discount off membership fees for the YMCA. And the initiation fee is waived.

These benefits apply to all UPHS employees who have a Penn Medicine-issued ID badge. Peruse the full array of offerings at Select UPHS or CCH from the drop-down list, and select “Deals and Discounts” under “Work/Life.” If you have questions, contact the Benefits Office at 215-615-2675, option #4, or email
