“I grew up in this community and have worked for Crozer-Keystone for over 34 years, and I have done so in large part because of this system’s passion about the health of the community. The work we do is not always easy. But our many programs are possible only because of the leadership and commitment of our Board of Directors and senior leadership team. Although the work can be difficult, the mission is simple to us because it is who we are.” - Gwen Smith, vice president, Community Health Education, and president of Springfield Hospital.
