A New Strategic Alliance

The Health System has formed a strategic alliance with Lancaster General Health (LG Health) to jointly develop innovative programs and initiatives to benefit both organizations across our respective mission areas, especially in the delivery of high quality and cost effective patient care services. Both organizations will continue to function independently but with stronger emphasis for expanded partnerships on certain initiatives, and particularly in coordinated patient care experience between our health systems.

A three-hospital health system located in South Central Pennsylvania, LG Health has been recognized regionally and nationally for its cost effective patient care services, clinical excellence, patient safety, and thrice designated a Magnet hospital for nursing excellence.
