ChristianaCare Adds Primary Care Practices in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Communities of Jennersville and West Grove

The practices strengthen ChristianaCare as a preferred provider of primary care services in our region

Residents in the Southeastern Pennsylvania communities of Jennersville and West Grove will have access to two medical practices that are joining ChristianaCare’s award-winning network of primary care practices starting today. 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 throughout Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Eastern Maryland.

“ChristianaCare strives to make a positive impact on the health of every person in every community we serve,” said Lisa Maxwell, M.D., MHCDS, 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. Their addition strengthens ChristianaCare as a preferred provider of high-quality primary care services in Southeastern Pennsylvania. If you’re looking for a new primary care provider, you are welcome to join one of our practices.”

Patients who choose a ChristianaCare primary care practice benefit from the advantages of being connected to Delaware’s largest, most advanced health care system, including electronic medical records and easy referrals. Their primary care provider becomes their “medical home” — the place where patients can build a relationship with their health care provider and seek medical advice for health problems large and small.

The seamless transition to ChristianaCare will enable the practices to continue to provide optimal primary care services, including physical examinations, preventive health screenings and immunizations, chronic disease management and care for acute illnesses. Patients of ChristianaCare’s primary care practices can access a secure patient portal that helps them to be actively engaged in their health.

The physicians and support staff at the two locations will remain at the practices and become employed by ChristianaCare, which plans to expand staff and support services at the sites.

Here are the addresses, phone numbers and names of staff at the practices:
