Hearing: Maternity Deserts in Delaware County

This year, Crozer Health announced that it is closing a number of its facilities in attempt to cut cost “to be able to continue providing the highest quality care.” Lawmakers in Delaware County see a big issue with these planned closures on the community and are hosting a hearing to understand the impact is has, especially on expectant mothers.

Following the hearing, lawmakers will walk to Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) to join Delaware County Memorial Hospital Nurses and Techs demonstrating outside the hospital. The event is being called an “Informational Picket” and is the second event held by PA Association of Staff Nurses & Allied Professionals (PASNAP).

Rep. Gina H. Curry, D-Delaware, and Rep. Mike Zabel, D-Delaware, will host the hearing of the Democratic Policy Committee Chaired by Rep. Ryan Bizzarro on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at Monsignor Bonner & Arch-Bishop Prendergast Catholic H.S. Auditorium, 403 N. Lansdowne Ave., Drexel Hill, PA. Elected officials attending the hearing will hear from medical professionals, community leaders, maternity care providers, and members of the community.
