Hulahan rides on LCH in Kenneth, praises local health workers – Daily Local
KENNETT SQUARE – U.S. Representative Chris Hulahan visited LCH Health and Community Services this week and met with health professionals at their Kennett Square facility. This is her third visit to the LCH, but her first visit since the closure of Generesville and Brandywine hospitals, which has affected the region’s healthcare landscape.
“The health professionals represent the best values of our community, and I am incredibly grateful for the dedicated staff of the LCH who continue to serve the people of Chester County South,” Hulahan said. “But as I heard again today, COVID has affected our healthcare partners and they need our continued support. That’s why I was proud to have helped adopt the U.S. rescue plan, which provided significant federal funding to the LCH to keep their doors open. Federal-accredited institutions, such as LCH, serve a wide range of patients, including those covered by Medicare and Medicaid, not to mention a holistic approach to social services. At a time when quality and affordable health care is paramount in our community and across the country, we are grateful for their services. ”
“LCH Health and Community Services has a unique position to align resources and services for the benefit of the community here in South Chester County,” said Dr. Joseph Greco, Medical Director. “I am proud of our staff for their ability to focus on preventing chronic diseases and addressing the mental health of the people we serve. We continue to stand with the conviction that our patients are the most worthy recipients. “
“LCH serves a large and diverse population in South Chester County and plays an important role in addressing the disparity in care,” said Ronan W. Gannon, Chief Executive Officer. “I want to thank Representative Chrissy Hulahan for coming to LCH today to discuss these important issues as LCH continues to care about the needs of our entire group of patients, including those who have Medicare and Medicaid.”
LCH Health and Community Services has three locations: Kenneth Square, Oxford and West Grove. They offer remote health services, and bilingual staff are ready to help patients if they need it.
