Pennsylvania hospitals collaborate to expand home care services


To expand their home care services to serve all of Philadelphia County and Lower Bucks County, St. Agnes Medical Center and Nazareth Hospital, Philadelphia, Pa., and St. Mary Medical Center, Langhorne, Pa., now operate joint home care services under St. Agnes’ home care license. "Recently, many other organizations have exited the home care business," said Thomasina Chamberlain, director of regional home care services. "Now more than ever, we are committed to providing a full range of services, including home care."
