WILMINGTON, Del.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Imagine a hospital right in your neighborhood that provides exceptional care and patient experience, convenient access to a high-quality emergency department, and health care services tailored just for your community.

That’s the vision ChristianaCare and its partner, Emerus Holdings Inc., have for three neighborhood hospitals they will open in Pennsylvania in 2025. Today, the two leading health care companies announced they will develop two new neighborhood hospitals in Delaware County, in addition to the neighborhood hospital already being developed at ChristianaCare’s West Grove Campus in southern Chester County. Together, the three neighborhood hospitals represent a new layer of care coming to southeastern Pennsylvania.

“We are excited to bring this new model of care to our neighbors in Delaware County,” said Janice Nevin, M.D., MPH, ChristianaCare president and CEO. "ChristianaCare is reimagining health care with a focus on delivering the right care, in the right place and time, with the right health care team involved for every patient. Neighborhood hospitals will enable us to provide access to high-quality care in a way that is sustainable and right-sized to meet the needs of local communities. Our goal is to make access to health care easy and convenient for our Delco and Chester County neighbors.”

Each neighborhood hospital will operate 24/7 with approximately 10 inpatient beds and a full-service emergency department. The emergency departments will treat common emergency care needs such as falls, injuries, heart attacks and strokes. The hospitals will also provide diagnostic capabilities, including ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), X-ray and laboratory services.

In addition to on-site staff, the hospitals will benefit from access to ChristianaCare’s large network of specialists and support services — such as neurology and cardiology — through virtual consults.

ChristianaCare will additionally add a health and wellness center at each location with an array of outpatient services. These services will be developed based on community needs and could include primary care, outpatient diagnostics and other specialty services.

Specific locations for the Delaware County neighborhood hospitals have not yet been finalized and will be announced at a later date. All three of the neighborhood hospitals are planned to open in 2025, with the West Grove location expected to open first.
