If the sale of Jennersville and Brandywine hospitals goes through, Canyon Atlantic Partners has ambitious plans for Chester County’s two shuttered medical centers, writes John George for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Earlier this week, a court ruling reinstated the hospital-turnaround company’s agreement to buy the two hospitals from Tower Health.

“I can tell you Canyon Atlantic and the leadership there will try their very best to make these hospitals function in a way we can all be proud of,” said Benjamin A. Post, an attorney representing the Texas-based firm.

According to Post, the corporate vision is to go beyond offering standard healthcare services at the two locations. It wants to create several community-based programs, including daycare, elderly care, and addiction counseling services.

The company also wants to reopen the much-needed 64-bed behavioral health unit that closed when Brandywine Hospital went dark.

“They have a model that will make them much more than hospitals,” said Post. “It is an ambitious plan.”

Company representatives will tour the two hospitals next week to assess their status and determine the actions necessary to complete this transaction.
