Hahnemann closure pushed back

Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia was slated to close Sept. 6, but the closure has been pushed back one week, according to CBS Philly.

Hahnemann has been scaling back services since announcing in June that it would close Sept. 6. The hospital pushed back the closure date after a bankruptcy judge approved the sale of its residency programs on Sept. 5.  

Hahnemann's owners initially agreed to sell its residency slots to West Reading, Pa.-based Tower Health for $7.5 million. However, six health systems teamed up to bid $55 million for the residency programs on Aug. 9. Three Philadelphia-based health systems — Einstein Healthcare Network, Jefferson Health and Temple University Health System — joined forces with Bryn Mawr, Pa.-based Main Line Health, Camden, N.J.-based Cooper University Health Care and Wilmington, Del.-based Christiana Care Health System to place the winning bid.
