Lighting Chester County Hospital’s Largest Expansion Ever

Chester County Hospital Expansion

As Chester County Hospital celebrates its 125 years of service, it is also gearing up to break ground on the largest expansion in the hospital’s history.

The Lighting Practice is part of the design team working on the 276,000-square-foot addition to the hospital, which is part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. TLP’s Helen Diemer, Emad Hasan, and John Conley provided lighting design for the exterior entries, courtyards, interior lobby and public spaces. The lighting design will reinforce the architectural design by highlighting architectural features. It will also act as a wayfinding device to guide visitors and patients through the building.

Once construction is complete, the hospital will gain a beautiful new front entrance in addition to new operating rooms suites, additional emergency department rooms and high-tech labs, new areas for non-invasive cardiology and pre-admission testing, and as many as 96 inpatient beds (pending approval). Construction is scheduled to begin this summer.

TLP is proud to be a part of this exciting expansion that will allow Chester County Hospital to provide its high quality care for even more patients.
