ChristianaCare completes purchase of former Jennersville Hospital in Chester County; will be named West Grove Campus

WEST GROVE, Pa. (WPVI) – ChristianaCare has completed the purchase of the former Jennersville Hospital in West Grove, Chester County.

When it opens, the location will be called the ChristianaCare West Grove Campus.

In an announcement Wednesday morning, ChristianaCare says it will take time for services to open on campus.

“It will be a few more months before we can finalize a timeline,” said Douglas P. Azar, senior vice president, strategic clinical integration at ChristianaCare.

According to Azar, planning is underway to “develop an intelligent, sustainable model for this campus that meets the long-term needs of the community. There are a lot of complexities that come with that, including information technology, supply chain, labor, building renovations and more.”

Since the purchase was announced in June, ChristianaCare says its leaders have met with the community to listen and learn.

Heather Farley, MD, MHCDS, FACEP, ChristianaCare Chief Wellness Officer and Co-Lead for Campus Development Strategy, says her first priority is restoring local access to emergency services.

“We heard loud and clear that this is what the community needs most,” Farley said.

ChristianaCare and Tower Health initially announced the purchase agreement on June 14.

The purchase included the hospital, which has been closed since December 31, 2021, and Tower Health’s interest in two office buildings and an additional 24-acre property adjacent to the hospital.

According to ChristianaCare, the acquisition does not include any employees or practices that are currently in operation.

The purchase price was 8 million US dollars.

In February, ChristianaCare also announced a letter of intent to acquire Crozer Health.
