Getting Healthcare Right

Bill Toland

Bill TolandI was as surprised as anybody to learn that I am employable outside of the newspaper industry, which occupied the first decades of my professional life. But in 2015, after having spent seven years writing about health care and health insurance for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, I joined Allegheny Health Network’s communications team. Today, I support executive communications and related functions at AHN as well as Highmark Health. Like so many of my colleagues who have contributed to this blog, I enjoy telling the story of how AHN and the entire Highmark Health family of companies are working to get health care right — one patient, one client, one customer at a time.

Originally from Apollo, Pa., I also spent a few years learning and working in Johnstown and Beaver County before washing down the Kiskiminetas River, ending up in Pittsburgh. Today, I live in Baldwin with my wife and two children. I also sit on the board of directors at Pittsburgh Cares, an organization that advances a culture of volunteerism and civic engagement in the Pittsburgh region by connecting area nonprofits with the volunteer manpower they need in order to carry out their missions.
