A strategic alliance between Grand View Health and Penn Medicine strives to create easier access to care in two ways:
The alliance includes relationships between the two organizations for the treatment of cancer, orthopaedic and trauma patients. Additionally, Penn Medicine supports Grand View Health’s Primary Stroke Center with its telestroke and teleneurology programs.
If expertise for a unique surgery requires more complex treatment and care than is available locally, Grand View Health providers will refer patients to the specialists at Penn Orthopaedics. Surgeons from Penn Orthopaedics will perform these specialty procedures, while Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health will coordinate the care so patients can receive post-surgery treatment, such as physical therapy, close to home.
Grand View Health is accredited as a Level II Trauma Center by the Pennsylvania Trauma Systems Foundation and is a member of the Penn Trauma Network. Penn Medicine trauma surgeons are available at Grand View Health 24/7, 365 days a year.
Grand View Health is building a six-story addition to its Sellersville hospital which will include a new emergency department, helipad and state-of-the-art trauma bays, to further enhance its trauma capabilities.
Grand View Health is proud to be a member of the Penn Cancer Network, a select group of community hospitals throughout the tri-state area that work in collaboration with Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center, one of the leading National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country.
As a member of the Penn Cancer Network, we provide local access to today’s most advanced treatments and technology, most respected specialists, and most promising clinical trials from one of the nation’s top 10 cancer centers.
Radiation Oncology – In January 2020, Grand View Health and Penn Medicine expanded their Penn Cancer Network relationship to include radiation oncology services. The relationship makes it possible for patients to undergo radiation oncology treatment at the Sellersville hospital under the direction of a team of radiation oncology physicians from Penn Medicine.
The Penn Medicine Telestroke Program enables Penn providers to communicate with hospital care teams to quickly evaluate and treat people experiencing an acute stroke. Because time matters when having a stroke, the Telestroke Program provides remote access to the expertise needed when stroke specialists are not present or immediately available at the hospital in which the patient presents. The ultimate goal of the program is to help prevent any further damage to the brain.
