Main Line Health

Founded in 1985, Main Line Health® is a not-for-profit health system serving portions of Philadelphia and its western suburbs. At its core are four of the region’s most respected acute care hospitals—Lankenau Medical Center, Bryn Mawr Hospital, Paoli Hospital and Riddle Hospital—as well as one of the nation’s premier facilities for rehabilitative medicine, Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital. Main Line Health also includes Mirmont Treatment Center for drug and alcohol recovery, HomeCare & Hospice, Main Line Health Centers, Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, and Main Line HealthCare.

Main Line Health’s commitment—to deliver advanced medicine to treat and cure disease while also playing an important role in prevention and disease management as well as training physicians and other health care providers—reflects the health system’s intent to keep the local community well ahead. A team of more than 10,000 employees and 2,000 physicians care for patients throughout Main Line Health’s continuum of care.

Main Line Health’s four acute care hospitals have been recognized by U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Hospital” rankings as among the top 10 in the Philadelphia region and are accredited as primary stroke care centers, comprehensive breast centers, and chest pain centers. The health system is also one of only 22 in the US to receive System Magnet® designation, the nation’s highest distinction for nursing excellence.
