Penn Medicine to Buy Shuttered Brandywine Hospital in Chester County

Sep 18, 2023 | Uncategorized

COATESVILLE, Pennsylvania – Penn Medicine has struck a deal to purchase the shuttered Brandywine Hospital in Chester County.

Tower Health closed the hospital in Coatesville back in January of last year. Chester County officials informed Action News that the sale of the hospital is a reason for celebration. They stressed it followed a year and a half of healthcare access struggles in the county’s western part.

ChristianaCare purchased Jennersville Hospital in West Grove in June 2022, while Tower Health also closed the hospital around that time. Currently, there is no timeline for finalizing the deal or reopening Brandywine Hospital.

Chester County Commissioners Statements on Penn Purchasing Brandywine Hospital

“We are pleased that Tower Health has agreed to sell the former Brandywine Hospital to Penn Medicine. Penn Medicine already provides top hospital and healthcare services in Chester County, and the expansion of that investment to the Coatesville and surrounding area is tremendous news – and certainly cause to celebrate! As Penn Medicine completes their due diligence, we will support their efforts in reimagining healthcare access to everyone in Western Chester County.


“This outcome could not have been accomplished without partnerships – and persistence – at the state and federal level; tremendous support by our EMTs and other stakeholders, and our other hospitals in the county that have worked continuously since the closures to make sure that all health needs, including mental health needs, are met.”
