“When people see our headquarters, I want them to know that it represents so much more than an office space – it represents a workforce that’s dedicated to ensuring access to vital medications and therapies here in the U.S. and across the globe,” said Steve Collis, Chairman, President & CEO of AmerisourceBergen. “Our team members in the Philadelphia region and beyond play a vital role in keeping the health care supply chain moving every day, and I am so proud of their efforts, especially during the pandemic. Our new building in Conshohocken is a concrete example of our commitment to our team members here and I can’t wait to see what this next chapter of our company’s history brings.”
As a part of AmerisourceBergen’s efforts to promote sustainability and employee wellbeing, the new office houses a state-of-the art fitness facility, modern standing desks at all workstations, an onsite café with healthy food and snack options. The company is actively pursuing a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.

Maintaining a positive and productive workplace culture is extremely important to us, and we’re beyond proud to announce that our team members have deemed us a Great Place to Work for the third consecutive year.”

AmerisourceBergen and the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, an independent not-for-profit charitable giving organization focused on supporting health-related causes that enrich that global community, also acknowledged community grants and corporate gifts totaling $150,000 during today’s ribbon cutting ceremony. The Foundation has provided local community grants to All 4 Paws Rescue, Colonial Neighborhood Council, Patrician Society of Central Norristown, Schuylkill River Greenway Association, and Victim’s Services Center of Montgomery County. Through a corporate gift, national nonprofit Fresh Artists was able to install and display large-scale reproductions of children’s art throughout AmerisourceBergen’s headquarters. More than a third of the artwork was made by K-12 children in Norristown public schools. Fresh Artists mission is to ensure all children have access to art by delivering quality supplies and innovative art programs to under-funded public schools.
“At the AmerisourceBergen Foundation, we work tirelessly to foster diverse, equitable and inclusive partnerships that create healthier lives and communities and continuing that mission in our own backyard is incredibly important to us,” said Gina Clark, President of the AmerisourceBergen Foundation. “With the opening of our new headquarters, we are thrilled to announce partnerships with local organizations that have a direct impact on the people and animals that live here in this region, and we cannot wait to continue our partnerships and grow new ones in the years to come.”
