Employees can enjoy discounts at local establishments with our Neighborhood Explorer Program
Neighborhood Explorer Program
This Neighborhood Explorer Program is designed to better connect our 16,000 employees with the local businesses around the Medical Campus in the Allentown, Fruit Belt, and Downtown neighborhoods, and offers employees the opportunity to enjoy discounts from and experience businesses in the area in a fun and exciting way. Employees will receive a BNMC Neighborhood Explorer Sticker to be adhered on the back of ID badge, which will be presented to business to receive discounts. Businesses will also receive newly rebranded window clings to help identify themselves as a participating business offering employees a discount. Patronize and discover local businesses near the Medical Campus, experience each neighborhood, and become a part of the community. Sign-up to receive the Neighborhood Explorer Card and start enjoying the benefits of the community you work in!
