Philadelphia: Bringing its Famous Slogan to Life

Global brand leaders have proudly made their headquarters in Philadelphia for decades. These include corporations such as Aramark, Comcast, GlaxoSmithKline, Urban Outfitters, and many others. The city served as the capital city of the United States, before the construction of Washington, D.C. The federal government also has several facilities in Philadelphia including the East Coast operations of the United States Mint and federal courts.
Philadelphia is an important center for medicine, a distinction that it has held since the colonial period. The city is home to the nation’s first hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital, founded in 1751 by Dr. Thomas Bond and Benjamin Franklin "to care for the sick-poor and insane who were wandering the streets of Philadelphia." The city’s healthcare heritage also extends to the nation’s first medical school at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn). The city's largest private employer, Penn also runs a large teaching hospital and extensive medical system.
