Physicians in Crozer-Keystone’s Center for Geriatric Medicine are now seeing patients at a new office located on the ground floor of the Pentecostal Square senior rental community, 325 Pusey Street in Chester. In September, the
Center officially opened with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony that allowed members of the community to tour the office and obtain free health information and screenings.
Attendees of the event included Bishop Samuel W. Ellis, pastor of First Pentecostal Holy Church and the namesake of the medical facility at Pentecostal Square; Wendell Butler, mayor of Chester; Chester City Council members John Linder, Portia West and Marrea Walker-Smith; Patrick Gavin, President of Crozer-Chester Medical Center; Gwen Smith, president of Springfield Hospital; and William Zirker, M.D., chief of the Division of Geriatrics at Crozer-Chester Medical Center.
The Center for Geriatric Medicine consists of experienced, board-certified physicians who specialize in the care of seniors. The physicians specialize in ongoing health maintenance, complex medical problems and memory disorders. They work closely with each patient’s family members and caregivers to determine the best course of care. When needed, the practice can assist with referrals to specialized services, inpatient care and more. The practice’s physicians also see patients at offices at 200 E. State St., Media; 1553 Chester Pike, Crum Lynne; and the Residences at Chestnut Ridge, 2700 Chestnut St. in Chester.
Patients over 55 from throughout the community are eligible to be seen at the Pentecostal Square location. For more information or to schedule an appointment with the Center for Geriatric Medicine, call 610-499-7180.
