Delco House, Senate Delegation Introduce New Bills to Reform Abusive For-Profit Hospital Deals

(Jun 16, 2022)

DELAWARE COUNTY, June 16 – Today, State Senator Tim Kearney (D-Chester/Delaware) was joined by Senator John Kane, Senator Anthony Williams, Representative Gina H. Curry, Representative Leanne Krueger, Representative Jennifer O’Mara, and Representative Mike Zabel, to discuss new legislation that will prevent financial looting of Pennsylvania hospital systems by private-equity and for-profit companies. The package of bills was created in response to decisions made by Prospect Medical Holdings - the parent company of Crozer Health - to close numerous departments, cut healthcare staff, and discontinue services within several Delaware County hospitals. “What’s happening with Crozer Health is a tragedy and underscores the need for legislators to work to protect our local healthcare systems from manipulative and predatory private-equity practices in the future,” said Senator Kearney. “We want to give the state more oversight over these transactions and create other policies that deter these bad actors from looting our healthcare systems and then running once the resources vanish. If private equity in healthcare prioritizes investors and protects their assets, then this legislative delegation will work equally as hard to protect our constituents, and the integrity of our health care systems.” Prospect Medical Holdings and its former majority owner Leonard Green & Partners have a history of abusing healthcare systems to maximize Read more

State lawmakers announce $1.3M in funding for transportation projects in Upper Darby Township

(Apr 20, 2022)

Harrisburg, April 20 – Reps. Gina H. Curry and Mike Zabel, both D-Delaware, announced today that Upper Darby Township has received $1.3 million towards roadway and sidewalk improvements along Garrett Road, also known as the Garrett Road Modernization Multimodal Connectivity Project. These upgrades consist of adding bicycle lanes, ADA-curb ramps, and redesign to support pedestrian safety. “Improving our roads for our pedestrians, drivers and bikers in the Upper Darby Township is vital,” said Curry. “This will help keep our residents safe and potentially reduce traffic accidents.” The project is one of 43 statewide transportation initiatives funded through the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Under BIL, the administration awarded $54.1 million to the Transportation Alternatives Set- Aside Program to enhance pedestrian and roadway infrastructure. “This project has three positive aspects in that it will improve local roadways, increase safety and promote mobility for pedestrians and bicyclists,” Zabel said. “I’m pleased to see state and federal funding helping to increase connectivity through green options, like bicycling and walking, since I believe they will continue to be a popular and growing option for many residents.” Applications for projects were reviewed by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the state Department of Read more
