Who We Are

The global patient organization focused on delivering the best medical outcomes.

Established by and for patients 

Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Preferred Global Health, PGH, is an independent global patient organization with more than 20 years’ experience in supporting our members and their families.

We take a personalized, patient-centered approach to life-threatening illnesses – like heart disease and cancer – and focus on achieving the best possible outcome.
