The nation’s first pediatric hospital, CHOP is consistently named among America’s best by U.S. News & World Report, a level of quality our community deserves.
This year, LG Health welcomed CHOP specialists in cardiology, gastroenterology and endocrinology who see children at LG Health's Suburban Pavilion. A neurology practice and a diabetes clinic also opened this fall, and CHOP physicians manage our neonatal intensive care unit at Women & Babies Hospital.
Through continued partnership, LG Health and CHOP will grow our high-quality pediatric services and enhance access to a broad spectrum of pediatric programs. The partnership’s commitment is to provide as many specialized services locally as possible. Working together makes quality care more convenient for patients and ensures continuity.
Lancaster General Hospital’s expansion will include a dedicated space that provides the best pediatric care in a warm, child-centered setting.
And when children need more intensive treatment, they have direct access to CHOP’s main hospital in Philadelphia and its top-ranked doctors.

KEEPING AN EYE ON NEWBORNS
When Steph and Chris Conroy’s daughter Ella was born with a fast-growing hemangioma (birth mark) that started closing her left eye, her pediatrician at LG Health connected the Conroys with experts at CHOP. “It was a big cause of concern,” remembers Chris, who is grateful for the seamless care between the two partners. “There were no hurdles,” added Steph. Medication dispensed in Ella’s infant formula, and later laser treatments, have made her a healthy, confident young lady today.
CHOP earned second place on the 2016-17 U.S. News & World Report's Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals, with eight clinical programs ranked in the top three nationally. It is the only pediatric hospital in the tristate region named to the prestigious list.
“To be ranked among the top pediatric hospitals is an honor, which reflects our commitment to provide the optimum care for every child and family we serve,” said Madeline Bell, president and chief executive officer of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
