The Greater Coatesville Health Equity group (formerly the Greater Coatesville Hospital Closure Group) was formed as a result of the closures of the Brandywine and Jennersville hospitals that drastically increased the inaccessibility and inequity of healthcare in the Coatesville community. The group is made up of leaders representing nearly 20 local and county organizations who develop strategies to minimize the disruption of healthcare services and rebuild a strong and equitable healthcare system in the region.
There are three subgroups to the Greater Coatesville Health Equity Group – Integrated Health Delivery, Access and Engagement, and Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). These subgroups were formed to prioritize and communicate short-term healthcare needs and to focus on long-term methods to rebuild a stronger healthcare system that is not as vulnerable to the impact of hospital closures and that assesses and addresses gaps in healthcare and health-related services.
