ChristianaCare Partners with Emerus Holdings to Develop Three Hospitals

The three neighborhood hospitals are expected to open in Pennsylvania in 2025.

By HFT Staff

Imagine a hospital right in a neighborhood that provides exceptional care and patient experience, convenient access to a high-quality emergency department, and healthcare services tailored just for that community. 

That’s the vision ChristianaCare and its partner, Emerus Holdings Inc., have for three neighborhood hospitals they will open in Pennsylvania in 2025. 

The two healthcare 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.

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, 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 also will 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.
