Community Benefit Spring Report 2009
Table of Contents
Growth and Expansion
- As we continue to dedicate resources to the community, one of the most visible signs of this investment is the expansion of our facilities. Last year, LG Health invested $35 million into new and renovated facilities, creating and sustaining jobs and bringing new technology to our community.
Access to Care
- Through the collaboration of the Lancaster County Medical Foundation, PALCO brings together primary care physicians, specialists, pharmacists, hospitals and not-for-profit agencies in Lancaster County under a common mission: to ensure that low-income, uninsured patients who don’t qualify for government assistance receive the same access to quality medical care and services as the insured.
Community Collaboration: Project SEARCH
- Lancaster General Health is committed to creating an extraordinary place to work and learn. As a result of our desire to have a workforce of outstanding employees from diverse backgrounds, we are collaborating with local community organizations to implement a high school transition program for young adults who are cognitively and physically challenged.
Electronic Medical Record
An integral part of the extraordinary experience at Lancaster General Health is ensuring that physicians and nurses have easy access to their patients’ complete medical records. That’s why LG Health and some of its physician practices have implemented electronic medical records (EMR) throughout the Lancaster General Health system.
Going Green – At Lancaster General Health, our efforts to “go green” complement our Mission of advancing the health and well-being of the communities we serve. They also advance our efforts to create an extraordinary place to receive care.
Supporting Our Community’s Health and Financial Needs – Because building a healthy community extends beyond providing healthcare, we support local governments, school districts and community improvement initiatives in addition to caring for those who are medically underserved.
