Lancaster General Health (LG Health) is a 623-bed integrated health care delivery system serving residents of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas. Its flagship Lancaster General Hospital (LGH) - opened in 1893 - is known for its cardiology, orthopedic, and intensive care specialties. A separate Women & Babies hospital cares for those just making it into the world. The system also includes multiple outpatient clinics, a rehab hospital, home care services, and a nursing center and healthcare college, as well as a medical group of more than 100 physicians operating from 20 offices throughout the area.
LG Health continues to make strategic investments to better serve its patients and the community. In 2010 it began a $100 million electronic records initiative, which included the launch of the MyLGHealth online program for accessing records, communicating with doctors, and requesting appointments. The following year the health system began construction on the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Center, which is scheduled to open in mid-2013. – less
