The Chester County Hospital has been serving Chester County and its surrounding communities for 120 years. Today, the Hospital provides a full range of health services. To meet the long-term health care needs of its rapidly growing community, the Hospital is embarking on this $45.2 million building project to increase inpatient bed capacity with 72 new private rooms and to install a new, state-of-the-art linear accelerator for the treatment of cancer.
