Hahnemann closes ED

The emergency department services were officially terminated at Philadelphia-based Hahnemann University Hospital on Aug. 16 as part of the hospital's gradual closure process, according to a local ABC affiliate.

The 496-bed academic medical center will officially close its doors Sept. 6, according to the report.

Hahnemann University Hospital first announced its closure in June due to financial issues. As of April 2019, the hospital was hemorrhaging $3 million to $5 million each month.

American Academic Health System, part of El Segundo, Calif.-based Paladin Healthcare, bought the hospital from Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare in 2018.
