At Chester County Hospital, we realize that at times our patients require more than medical treatment when facing health care issues. That's why we have developed a wide variety of support groups to provide personal counseling and emotional support to patients and their families in dealing with illness and its physical and emotional effects. Support group participants attend sessions both to learn and to share. They benefit from the information presented by guest speakers and draw strength from sharing their experiences with others.
