These real cases show some of the ways in which PGH successfully and tangibly helps patients and their families.

"I would like to thank PGH for a very important feature of my policy, the role of coordination. Diagnosis of cancer is likely a grim prospect for even the most optimistic of us. My case was no different. PGH was instrumental in making available to me the best medical institutions in the US. All my medical services were coordinated on an expedited basis. I am grateful to the dedicated and consistent care team and wonderful Personal Care Manager who went above and beyond in every way."

Eric's Story


Eric’s diagnosis of laryngeal cancer was devastating to him and his family. The treatment of head and neck cancer is complex because vital functions like breathing, speech, and swallowing can be affected. Through PGH, Eric’s diagnosis was evaluated by an interdisciplinary team of specialist doctors with unparalleled knowledge and experience in treating head and neck cancers. Based on the location and stage of the cancer, Eric’s overall health, and his personal preferences, the doctors developed a treatment plan tailored to Eric’s needs. Throughout the Diagnosis Verification and Treatment Plan, Eric’s Personal Care Manager, an experienced healthcare professional himself, made sure that all benefits and potential side effects were adequately communicated and understood. Eric completed his radiation and chemotherapy treatment locally and since then has been recovering through rehabilitation. Through PGH, Eric is also being made aware of developments in clinical trials and targeted drug therapy should the cancer come back.
