PENN >> State Sen. Andy Din­ni­man, D-19, was re­cently joined by lo­cal of­fi­cials in rec­og­niz­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of Jen­nersville Hos­pi­tal.

Din­ni­man pre­sented mem­bers of the hos­pi­tal’s board of direc­tors with a spe­cial Se­nate ci­ta­tion in honor of the cen­ten­nial an­niver­sary dur­ing a cel­e­bra­tory lun­cheon at the Penn Town­ship Build­ing.

“Jen­nersville Hos­pi­tal is a Ch­ester County suc­cess story that con­tin­ues to­day as it grows to meet the needs of a thriv­ing and di­verse pop­u­la­tion,” Din­ni­man said. “I want to thank all of the doc­tors, nurses, tech­ni­cians, staff, vol­un­teers, sup­port­ers, and pa­trons, past and present, who’ve worked to serve the med­i­cal needs of gen­er­a­tions of in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies in south­ern Ch­ester County. Thank you and here’s to an­other 100 years of health and well­ness.”

The hos­pi­tal traces its roots to the vi­sion and work of Dr. Wil­liam Ewing, who a cen­tury ago started a sim­ple 5-bed clinic at his boyhood home on Ever­green Street in West Grove dur­ing the 1918 Span­ish In­fluenza out­break. In April of that year, Ewing Hos­pi­tal was of­fi­cially es­tab­lished on the corner of Prospect and Rail­road Av­enues.

In 1959, the hos­pi­tal moved to its cur­rent lo­ca­tion in Jen­nersville as the West Grove Hos­pi­tal. Later, it was re­named the South­ern Ch­ester County Med­i­cal Cen­ter. In 2001, it be­came the Jen­nersville Re­gional Hos­pi­tal and in 2017, the Jen­nersville
