Lancaster General Health joins Penn Medicine August 1

July 28, 2015

LANCASTER, PA – Effective Aug. 1, Lancaster General Health will become a member of the University of Pennsylvania Health System (Penn Medicine). This combination unites one of the nation’s top academic medical centers – world-renowned for its clinical and research excellence – with a health system nationally ranked for its clinical quality. Both are among the top five systems in Pennsylvania, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.

Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences is an entity of Lancaster General Health and, by extension, will benefit from the strength this new relationship brings to the health care offerings in Lancaster County. While currently this change does not affect the curriculum of any programs at PA College, the increased exposure to innovative health care procedures and renown health care professionals at LG Health will certainly serve our students well.
