All Chester County hospitals, and most hospitals in the region, continue to experience higher than normal volumes of patients, specifically in their emergency departments. This can result in extended wait times. 

Please note ER treatment is prioritized by emergency medical need at the time of arrival and not by method of arrival at the ER (personal transportation or ambulance).  

For minor conditions,please call your primary care physician or consider using an pharmacy-based clinic or urgent care
