ChristianaCare has acquired medical practices in southeastern Pennsylvania communities of Jennersville and West Grove.
The practices were previously part of Tower Health. With the addition of the practices, ChristianaCare now operates 29 primary care practices for adults and children in Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and northeastern Maryland.
“ChristianaCare strives to make a positive impact on the health of every person in every community we serve,” said Lisa Maxwell, M.D., president of the Medical Group of ChristianaCare. “That includes increasing access to primary care services that will help people achieve their very best health.“We are thrilled that these two practices are joining ChristianaCare.
Below are the addresses, phone numbers and names of staff at the practices:

Duran and Barkasy from the Jennersville practice will also see patients at ChristianaCare Primary Care at Kennett Square at 721 East Baltimore Pike, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
The acquisition of the practices comes after efforts to reopen small hospitals in Jennersville and Coatesville fell through.
The hospitals, which had struggled financially were part of a failed expansion plan by Reading, PA-based Tower Health.
The University of Pennsylvania Health System also has physician offices in the Jennersville area and like ChristianaCare did not offer to reopen the hospitals.
The hospital closings continue to raise concerns among first responders and community leaders about the amount of time needed to get an emergency room in Delaware or West Chester, PA. The area has a large number of retirees, many from DuPont and other large Delaware employers
