The Community Care Story

Community Care Behavioral Health Organization (Community Care) is a non-profit and federally tax-exempt behavioral health managed care organization, headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Incorporated in 1996 , Community Care was created by a leadership team whose clinical experiences as behavioral health providers compelled them to create a company whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of the community through the delivery of effective, cost-efficient, and accessible behavioral health services.

Community Care is dedicated to facilitating the ongoing evolution of the behavioral health system toward one that embraces the journey of healing and transformation; empowering individuals with behavioral health problems to live meaningful lives in the communities of their choosing, while striving to achieve personal goals. At Community Care, we believe in more than just recovery principles, we take active steps to aid the service delivery system in reflecting that belief. Our dedication to this mission is evidenced through an unwavering commitment to continuous quality improvement through stakeholder partnerships with a focus on outcomes.

As part of the UPMC Health System, Community Care has strong working relationships with world renowned academic and research entities. Our focus on evaluation of treatment outcomes by our staff of behavioral health research experts allows us to continually assess and improve quality of care.

Community Care has been awarded three-year Full Accreditation - the highest possible level - from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Our success is, in large part, due to our responsiveness and flexibility in our ability to work in partnership and collaboration with all stakeholders to enhance the existing service delivery system through innovative means that go beyond traditional services.
