Plans Underway for Lancaster General Health to Join UPHS

Building on a longstanding clinical relationship between the two organizations, the University of Pennsylvania Health System has reached a final agreement for Lancaster General Health (LG Health) to join UPHS. A three-hospital health system located in South Central Pennsylvania, LG Health has been recognized regionally and nationally for its patient-centered services, clinical excellence, patient safety, and thrice designated a Magnet hospital for nursing excellence.

Joining the two of the state’s top health systems will build on the strengths of both, allowing them to provide better health-care services to more people. The detailed agreement is subject to various state and federal agency reviews before moving ahead.

Stay tuned to future issues of the Presby Bulletin for updates.
