The Chester County Hospital has been serving Chester County and its surrounding communities for more than 120 years. Today, the 245-bed Hospital provides a full range of health services. To meet the long-term health care needs of its rapidly growing community, the Hospital has embarked on a building project to increase inpatient bed capacity with private rooms and install a new, state-of-the-art Varian TrueBeam linear accelerator for the treatment of cancer.
Construction on the Tower Project began in March 2012 and the first 24 private Telemetry rooms were open to patients on July 1, 2013. The Project includes a 93,000-sq-ft, three-floor patient tower constructed adjacent to the Hospital's North Pavilion. The Project is designed to accommodate up to 72 private patient rooms - up to 24 rooms per floor - all equipped with monitoring capabilities and designed to meet medical, surgical, intermediate and intensive care requirements.
With the fourth floor of the building now open and in use, construction continues on the lower floors. The Radiation Oncology department will begin scheduling patients on the new linear accelerator in August 2013. The third floor is expected to be open by the end of 2013, and the second floor, which will house private maternity rooms and a well-baby nursery, will be open in the spring of 2014.
