Good News Recap: May 2021
Dear LCH Friends,

Thank you for such a warm welcome into the greater southern Chester County community. I am humbled and thrilled to be leading the LCH Team. Our three locations are open, ready and filled with enthusiasm and hope as we continue to take care of our patients and vaccinate the community.

While there are positive changes in our daily lives with eased restrictions and regulations, please continue to follow the health recommendations from the CDC. Have patience with your family and your neighbors in this transitional phase of the pandemic. Be mindful that some places, like our LCH health centers, still require masks to protect our staff and our patients.

If you have not done so already, the time is now to get vaccinated! We have tremendous community support out there available to answer your questions and connect you with an appointment, at LCH or elsewhere.

In good health,
Chief Executive Officer
