This article highlighting some of the top health care centers in the area is presented by the Wilmington car accident attorneys at Schuster Jachetti LLP.
The relatively-close “City of Brotherly Love” often overshadows the health care available in the tri-state area and, more specifically for our purposes, in the city of Wilmington. For this reason, on this page we’ll be recapping some of the best health care choices available to the locals in the area.
The Wilmington Hospital
Wilmington Hospital houses 241 licensed beds and is home to Christiana Care’s Center for Rehabilitation and Center for Advanced Joint Replacement. Its campus is also home to the Roxana Cannon Arsht Surgicenter, Wilmington Hospital Health Center, an HIV program and the First State School, a private/public partnership that provides in-school education for children with serious illnesses that would otherwise render them homebound. Plans for a $250 million expansion project were announced in 2007 that will include room for 90 new patient beds, new operating room suites, an expanded emergency department and much more.
The Hospital’s mission as an organization is to serve all of their neighbors as expert, caring partners in their health. The specialized team is able to achieve this by creating innovative, effective, affordable systems of care which are highly valued by all who experience them. This amounts amount to more than a public statement, it is in face a promise from the organization to its community, and which they refer to as The ChristianaCare Way.
Indeed, ChristianaCare has the most advanced health care technology available to help meet patient’s needs. And yet, more important than the technology, is the commitment to partner with all patients to meet their own individual and naturally unique needs.
Saint Francis Hospital
For more than ninety years, Saint Francis Healthcare has served the Wilmington community by providing compassionate health care of the highest quality. Founded by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Philadelphia in 1924, Saint Francis heeds a particular call to serve those in need. Their ministry is to serve all who require expert medical care regardless of religion, race, color, creed or economic status.
A member of Trinity Health, Saint Francis offers emergency care, cardiology, cancer care, family medicine and women’s health among other services. In addition to providing health care in an acute setting, Saint Francis also offers LIFE (Living Independently for Elders), a program of all-inclusive care for seniors, a Home Care program and a variety of affiliated physician practices.
