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.
