STRONGER TOGETHER:

DOING WHAT'S BEST FOR OUR COMMUNITY

In September 2013, the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania and the Board of directors of Chester County Hospital announced the hospital would join Penn Medicine's health system - its only hospital in suburban Philadelphia. This new relationship will give local patients greater access to a wider range of medical services.

THE GREATEST EXPECTATION:

FIRST-DAY FOCUS ON FAMILY AND PRIVACY

You've waited nine months for your new arrival. We've waited a lot longer for ours. This coming May, we will welcome 24 bundles of joy in the form of private maternity rooms. The amenities of the rooms, plus a new well-baby nursery, will complement the exceptional care our families already receive.

QUICK CARE. LESS WAITING. 24-7-365:

EMERGENCY CARE BEGINS AT THE DOOR

What used to take about an hour, now takes about 10 minutes. Drastic changes have taken place in the Emergency Department, resulting in the reduction of the average wait time it takes to see an ED physician. The key to this improvement - moving the doctor to the first step in the emergency visit, rather than at the last.

CHARITABLE GIVING:

TOWERING GENEROSITY - HOSPITAL HONORS THE LASKO FAMILY

Out of gratitude, the hospital has named its new expansion the Lasko Tower in recognition for the overwhelming generosity longtime West Chester couple - Vivian and Oscar Lasko - and their family have shown to us.
