Two primary care providers join LG Health
Lancaster General Health Physicians has added two primary care clinics to its growing collection of providers.
Red Rose, located in Lancaster Township, will now be known as LG Health Physicians Family Medicine Red Rose.
Oxford Medical Center, located in the borough of Oxford, will now be known as LG Health Physicians Family Medicine Oxford.
Lancaster General Health Physicians includes a network of over 800 physicians.
"We look forward to continuing to provide patients of both practices with exceptional health care," T. Raymond Foley III, president of LG Health Physicians, said in a statement.
It is the latest sign of growth for LG Health, which joined Penn Medicine in 2015.
In 2016, the nonprofit provider began expanding the 533-bed Lancaster General Hospital on North Duke Street in Lancaster. The eight-story, $67.3 million Frederick Building is expected to add 66 beds to the hospital when it opens this summer.
Also expected this summer is Lancaster Behavioral Health Hospital, a 126-bed, $30 million project near Franklin & Marshall College started last May. The new mental health hospital is a joint project between Penn Medicine/LG Health and Universal Health Services, a Montgomery County-based operator of over 350 mental health facilities in 37 states.
The deal between Lancaster General and Red Rose and Oxford Medical Center is the latest move among independent providers joining larger health networks.
Sollenberger Colon and Rectal Surgery in Susquehanna Township joined UPMC Pinnacle just last week. Three surgeons at Sollenberger - Larry Sollenberger, Andrew Richards, and Thomas Mazza - will operate as UPMC Pinnacle Colon and Rectal Surgery. Brian DeLong, also of Sollenberger, will practice as UPMC Pinnacle Colonoscopy and Proctology.
