Paoli Hospital Emergency Department

Paoli, Pennsylvania

Paoli Hospital, part of the Main Line Health System, is a 231-bed Level II acute care trauma facility located in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Originally born as the Homeopathic Hospital of West Chester in 1913, the hospital opened the doors at its current location in 1968, eventually expanding to its present-day capacity in 2009 when it opened a new patient care pavilion.

Receiving Lantern Award recognition for the second time, our emergency team utilizes 29-beds to meet the acute needs of over 40,000 patients annually. Our greatest accomplishments are our rapid evaluation process, staff engagement, and a very low number of patients that leave without treatment. Along with these accomplishments we celebrate top-decile patient satisfaction scores. We are also very proud of our work focusing on human trafficking recognition and intervention.

Paoli hospital is Magnet designated and carries Nurses Improving Care for Health-system Elders designation. Additional notable accomplishments include the Beacon Award for Excellence, consecutive Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval for breast cancer, hip replacements, knee replacements, and stroke as well as the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get with the Guidelines Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. High-volume service lines include trauma, cardiovascular, orthopedics, maternal/child, gastrointestinal, general surgery, and oncology services.
