The building on Concord Pike (Route 202), one mile north of the Delaware state line, offers “a way for us to get closer to those we serve and to serve more of our neighbors,” said Gary Ferguson, chief operating officer of Christiana Care. Click here for an earlier story.
“We are not new to the Keystone State,’’ he said, noting that nearly 10 percent of Christiana Care’s patients live in the area, and Wilmington Hospital, which is finishing a $210 million renovation, is just a few miles south.
“At Christiana Care, we serve our neighbors, and we consider this part of our neighborhood,” Ferguson said. “Our philosophy is to be expert, caring partners, to help those who are sick regain their health and to help those who are well to stay well.’’
Doctors, nurses and staff who will serve patients at Concord Health Center cut a ceremonial ribbon and showed guests how the new facility brings together outpatient services and programs coordinated in one convenient location.
For the large population living near the Delaware-Pennsylvania border, Concord Health Center offers “one-stop shopping,’’ said Colleen P. Morrone, a member of the Delaware County (Pa.) Council. It’s easy to get to, and “you come into one facility and get what you need,’’ she said.
Services include primary care physicians who are board certified in internal medicine and pediatric care; OB-GYN physicians; specialists in cardiology, radiation oncology, GYN oncology, dermatology and endocrinology; outpatient cancer care through Christiana Care’s Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute; rehabilitation services and advanced cardiovascular testing; and diagnostic imaging and walk-in laboratory testing.
