2019 Chester County Hospital Community Benefit Report CoverCHESTER COUNTY HOSPITAL is committed to identifying, prioritizing and serving the health needs of our community. In fulfillment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the hospital performs a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years. In 2019, a group of local hospitals and health systems, including Chester County Hospital, convened to develop the first-ever Southeastern PA Regional CHNA.  From this needs assessment, a corresponding Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) specific to Chester County Hospital was written and put into action.

The hospital’s many established and long-standing community partnerships inform the work done for CHIP, with the common goal to help Chester County become a community in which all individuals can be healthy and empowered to manage their health. 

Chester County Hospital’s Community Benefit Report 2019 – Health Empowerment Partnerships – shares a few of the ways we are partnering with these local organizations to create new possibilities for wellness and good health among our neighbors of Chester County.

Although reimbursement for services rendered is critical to the operation and stability of Chester County Hospital, it is recognized that not all individuals possess the ability to purchase essential medical services and further that our mission is to serve the community with respect to providing health care services and health care education.

Therefore, in keeping with this hospital's commitment to serve all members of its community, it provides:

  • Free care and/or subsidized care;
  • Care at or below costs to persons covered by governmental programs;
  • Health activities and programs to support the community are considered where the need and/or an individual's inability to pay co-exist. These activities include wellness programs, community education programs, and special programs for the elderly, handicapped, medically underserved, and a variety of broad community support activities.

EMERGENCY CARE IS PROVIDED 24-HOURS-A-DAY AND IS ACCESSIBLE TO ALL REGARDLESS OF A PERSON'S ABILITY TO PAY.

Chester County Hospital provides care to persons covered by governmental programs at or below cost. Recognizing its mission to the community, services are provided to both Medicare and Medicaid patients. To the extent reimbursement is below cost, Chester County Hospital recognizes these amounts as charity care in meeting its mission to the entire community.
