PENN (November 8, 2018) –State Senator Andy Dinniman was recently joined by local officials in recognizing the 100th anniversary of Jennersville Hospital.

Dinniman presented members of the hospital’s board of directors with a special Senate citation in honor of the centennial anniversary during a celebratory luncheon at the Penn Township Building.

“Jennersville Hospital is a Chester County success story that continues today as it grows to meet the needs of a thriving and diverse population,” Dinniman said. “I want to thank all of the doctors, nurses, technicians, staff, volunteers, supporters, and patrons, past and present, who’ve worked to serve the medical needs of generations of individuals and families in southern Chester County. Thank you and here’s to another 100 years of health and wellness.”

The hospital traces its roots to the vision and work of Dr. William Ewing, who a century ago started a simple 5-bed clinic at his boyhood home on Evergreen Street in West Grove during the 1918 Spanish Influenza outbreak. In April of that year, Ewing Hospital was officially established on the corner of Prospect and Railroad Avenues.

In 1959, the hospital moved to its current location in Jennersville as the West Grove Hospital. Later, it was renamed the Southern Chester County Medical Center. In 2001, it became the Jennersville Regional Hospital and in 2017, the Jennersville Hospital as part of Tower Health.

Today, Jennersville Hospital’s 63-bed facility features all private rooms and offers inpatient and outpatient services, including 24-hour emergency care, diagnostic care, orthopedics, and surgical services. With more than 75 medical staff members, Jennersville Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission and has been recognized for its quality outcomes and clinical expertise across services lines.
