Our History/Mission

About Reading Hospital

A comprehensive continuum of care and services.Mission_History

We built Reading Hospital and its iconic clock tower to stand as a symbol of our commitment to providing unparalleled healthcare services to the people of this community.

While our tower represents all that we’ve been, our new name, Reading Health System, is truly a better reflection of the organization we are today. It is an organization that has grown tremendously in range of services, advanced treatments, as well as physical locations. The system today consists of four major gateways — Reading Hospital, Reading Health Rehabilitation Hospital, Reading Health Physician Partners, and Reading Health Medical Services.

Combined, our 7,300 team members and 1,000 physicians and providers across 63 locations are committed to fulfilling our promise to advance the health and wellness of the communities we serve. Our integrated system of care, from prevention and education to the latest clinical services, forms the foundation of advancing health and transforming lives at Reading Health System.

Our Mission

The Mission of Reading Health System is to provide compassionate, accessible, high quality, cost effective health care to the community; to promote health; to educate healthcare professionals; and to participate in appropriate clinical research.
