Philadelphia


Justice League, Assemble!

In an effort to save the bankrupt St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, four Philadelphia based organizations -  Einstein Healthcare Network, Jefferson Health, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) and Temple Health - have announced that they will form a consortium in an effort to negotiate the purchase of the 143-year-old pediatric hospital with the American Academic Health System (AAHS). Achintya Moulick, Chief Medical Officer at St. Christopher, explained, "In a time of difficult transition for health care in Philadelphia, four healthcare organizations stepping up to do what’s right by St. Christopher’s patients is truly emblematic of neighbors helping neighbors. This will ensure continuity of care and service to the children of the community it serves, especially the underserved population." The consortium intends to submit a Letter of Intent to AAHS to allow for St. Christopher’s to continue serving those who need help in their area. Talk about the City of Brotherly Love!
