Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood is 150 years old!

I had no idea that Lankenau hospital in Wynnewood is over 150 years old, wow! I live just about a mile away from it, and have for most of my life. I went to my pedeatrician there as a child, had many a ER visits there growing up, and now I attend births there as a doula. I love the continuity that comes with living in the same town that I grew up in.

It was also the place that health insurance was conceived. If you paid 25 cents per month, you would be entitled to free admission. Amazing.

Lankenau hospital is such a blessing to have so close to home.
