From the Advanced Practice Steering Committee
This year the advanced practice clinicians at Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health are celebrating our advanced practice professions—nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants—together during LG Health Advanced Practice Week Oct. 28 to Nov. 1. As part of the celebration, we would like to share education about our growing advanced practice professions.
There are approximately 438 advanced practice clinicians privileged with the Penn Medicine LG Health system, making up 31 percent of the Medical & Dental Staff. See the current advanced practice statistics in the graphic above.
Please read this Top Five “Things to Know” about our advanced practice professions. On behalf of the Advanced Practice Steering Committee, we are grateful to work at LG Health, where advanced practice is noticeably valued and well supported in each of our respective professions. In partnering with our physician colleagues, we look to continue to strive to provide high-quality, accessible and cost-effective care to our community.
