Benefits: Health Services for Women and Children at Chester County Hospital
At Chester County Hospital, we are dedicated to giving every baby in Chester County a healthy start in life. For new families in crisis, this means having the expertise - skilled physicians and nurses, compassionate care, and a partnership with Children's Hospital of Philadelphia - to handle even the most challenging cases close to home.
The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Chester County Hospital manages the care of babies who have special medical concerns. Led by a team of neonatologists from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on staff at Chester County Hospital and complemented by skilled nurses, our Level III NICU administers to the specialized needs of infants who require advanced care upon birth.
We have the only Level III NICU certification in the county. This means the hospital has in-house neonatology specialists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The care we provide is family-centered, attentive, and professional. Care is delivered in a safe environment and is individualized to the needs of the tiniest patient. This level of care is only possible with the support of friends like you.
This year's tournament takes place on Tuesday, September 30 at White Manor Country Club in Malvern where we will be joined by PGA Tour Professional, Sean O'Hair. We hope that we can count on your continued support and that together will can make a difference in the lives of our tiniest patients and their families. We look forward to seeing you on the green.

The FORE Health Invitational represents the union of two distinct golf outings - the FORE Health Golf Tournament (est. 1986) and The Chester County Hospital Invitational (est. 2006). Driven by the Willistown Branch of the Women's Auxiliary, the elder of the two outings had been a long-running fall tradition supporting various medical services provided by the Hospital. The younger spring outing was founded by a young family - the Benton's - who had the passion to memorialize the loss of their newborn son by supporting maternal-infant health services. The FORE Health Invitational combines the women's drive with family passion. Drive and passion: two critical elements for a successful game of golf. Together as one, the Invitational benefits health services for women and children.
