On Thursday, May 25, Independence Blue Cross associates celebrated the company’s 80 years of service to the community and the multi-year expansion of its Center City campus on West Market Street with a special summer-themed event.

Independence associates gathered in the campus’ recently renovated courtyard at 1901 Market to enjoy some of their favorite summertime snacks and listen to music. Associates could also pose for a photo with our 80th anniversary cake highlighting the company’s service in the region. The cake was displayed in the lobby of 1901 Market Street and was designed by Independence member Christina Cinquino.

The event celebrated Independence’s 80-year commitment to the community, as well as West Market Street campus in Center City, which includes 1901 Market Street, 1900 Market Street, and Independence LIVE. It also recognized the relocation of Independence Innovation Center, formally announced by President and CEO Dan Hilferty at a media event the day before.
