In response to Hahnemann University Hospital’s recent closure announcement, the Main Line Health team is committed to helping patients and industry colleagues across the region.
Main Line Health quickly initiated steps to assist displaced employees, physicians, patients and others impacted by the closure of Hahnemann. Over the course of the past two weeks, the MLH team has talked to hundreds of physicians, nurses, residents, program managers and other employees at Hahnemann to determine appropriate match opportunities, and our HR team attended a job fair onsite at Hahnemann. We have also been communicating with our academic partners, including Jefferson and PCOM, to assure them of our ongoing commitment to these important relationships.
While we understand an agreement is underway between Tower Health, Drexel and Hahnemann to transfer many residents and fellows, the guidance of the American College of Graduate Medical Education, the accrediting body, states that orphaned trainees have a voice in determining where they wish to complete their training. Our Medical Education Leadership team, led by Phil Robinson, is actively meeting with residents and fellows who have an interest in Main Line Health.
Our hope is that all Hahnemann employees, physicians, residents and fellows find terrific opportunities where they can continue their passion for helping others in our community and build successful careers.
Any interested employees from Hahnemann can visit mainlinehealth.org/careers for more information on how to apply to our team. Physicians, residents and fellows can contact Phil at RobinsonP@mlhs.org.
