Crozer Health Temporarily Suspending Select Services Due to Staffing Constraints
Crozer Health has announced it will temporarily suspend services at the Springfield Hospital Emergency Department and ancillary services beginning Friday, January 14, 2022, due to staffing issues that have challenged the health care industry across the country.
In addition, the system has suspended the inpatient Acute Substance Abuse and Residential Substance Abuse (First Steps) Program at Crozer-Chester Medical Center as of Jan. 7. These service suspensions will allow for the temporary reallocation of staff from these departments to other areas in the health system in need of additional resources officials said in a press release.
Closures at Springfield Hospital include the Emergency Department, pathology, lab and medical imaging. All outpatient services located in the Healthplex Pavilion office building adjacent to Springfield Hospital – including Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, wound care, cardiac rehab services, and physician offices – will remain open and operational.
