ChristianaCare, a Delaware-based health care organization, recently purchased the former Jennersville Hospital in West Grove, which closed on Dec. 31, from Tower Health.

The purchase includes the hospital, Tower Health’s interest in two office buildings, and 24 acres of land. It does not include personnel or medical practices.

The campus will be renamed the ChristianaCare West Grove Campus. It has yet to be decided which services will be offered.

“At ChristianaCare, we recognize that the closing of Jennersville Hospital represented a loss of access to important health care services in the surrounding community,” Dr. Janice E. Nevin, ChristianaCare president and CEO, said. “ChristianaCare already serves many members of the Southern Chester County community in our hospitals and practices. We look forward to working with community leaders, listening and evaluating needs, and re-establishing the right mix of health care services at this location.”

The transaction is expected to close in 30 to 60 days.

ChristianaCare already serves residents of Southern Chester County. In March, it integrated two primary care practices in West Grove and Jennersville that had been part of Tower Health.

ChristianaCare’s network includes three hospitals, a freestanding emergency department, a Level I trauma center, and Level III neonatal intensive care unit.
