Now part of Jefferson Health, Aria Health (formerly called Frankford Health Systems,) is a healthcare system in Northeast Philadelphia and Lower Bucks County. It consists of three hospitals and a number of outpatient clinics.
Jefferson Frankford Hospital
The Frankford campus, now known as Jefferson Frankford Hospital, opened on July 4, 1903. The Frankford campus is a general medical and surgical hospital with 485 beds. In the last year with data available, the hospital had 131,188 emergency department visits, and performed 7,686 inpatient and 11,561 outpatient surgeries.
Jefferson Torresdale Hospital
In 1977, the Torresdale campus, now known as Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, opened in northeast Philadelphia. It is a 258-bed hospital, and a Level II trauma center. The Torresdale campus has a 1,300 car parking garage. There are also partner urgent care clinics in the Torresdale area.
Work began in 2013 for a new emergency department and parking garage at the Torresdale campus, at a cost of $37 million. The expansion increased the size of the emergency department to 42 beds. Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa. is rated high performing in 2 adult procedures and conditions, according to U.S. News & World Report. It is a general medical and surgical facility. It scored high in patient safety, demonstrating commitment to reducing accidents and medical mistakes.
Jefferson Bucks Hospital
Aria Health sought to build a new 229-bed facility in Lower Makefield to replace Bucks County Hospital. Local residents opposed this project, due to concerns about traffic congestion. In 2013, Aria Health proposed news plans for a "health care village," a facility offering multiple health care services, which may have lower impact on the environment and traffic congestion.
Graduate medical education
(Former) Aria Health operates a number of osteopathic residency programs accredited by the American Osteopathic Association. Aria Health hosts residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, and podiatric surgery, including two combined residency programs: one in internal and emergency medicine and another in family and emergency medicine.
In July 2016, Aria and Jefferson Health System announced an official merger to become one.
