Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell, and Michelle Kichline toured the Center for Family Health at Coatesville, part of ChesPenn Health Services, this week, and presented the community health organization with a check for $25,000. The check comes from the County’s Appropriation Funds and is part of its annual distribution.
The Commissioners said, “ChesPenn Health Services is a vital asset for health, wellness, and dental care in our area, and we are pleased to provide much-needed financial resources for the tremendous work the organization does. ChesPenn’s health center in Coatesville is a community gem that takes care of the medical needs of residents of all ages, while also promoting healthy choices – leading to a healthier community.”
Susan Harris-McGovern, President and CEO for ChesPenn Health Services, said, “Upon being awarded the generous $25,000 Chester County Commissioners grant, a quote from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. came to mind: ‘Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ Thank you, Commissioners, for doing for others.”
