Meet Tim Dean: Prostate Cancer Survivor
Chester County Hospital Saved My Life. Twice!
"When I was born three months premature at Chester County Hospital, they saved my life. 60 years later, they saved my life again by helping me beat prostate cancer. After thoroughly researching hospitals in the region, I was most impressed by Chester County Hospital. The fact that it’s my hometown hospital was a bonus. The day before Christmas, I was able to ring the bell signaling I had finished treatment. What a gift! Today I’m cancer-free and that’s worth Penn Medicine."
