Preparing for the future: Taking the next steps in advanced medical simulation.

Medical education has, for nearly 20 years, promoted a culture of clinical excellence at WellSpan York Hospital. It is a vital part of the hospital’s mission and has played a leading role in making WellSpan York Hospital one of the best community hospitals in the nation. Rapidly changing technology, new industry standards, increased healthcare costs, and a stronger focus on training efficiency call for ongoing commitment to the advancement of medical education.

That is why a new Education through Simulation Fund has been established. The fund will further WellSpan York Hospital’s commitment to experiential learning through advanced medical simulation – helping the hospital continue its tradition of attracting the “best and brightest” to our community, enhancing the region in so many ways.

When medication costs become insurmountable:

Prescription for caring (PFC) provides prescription payment assistance for those who need it most.
Imagine if you had to choose between buying groceries or paying for your medication or if you were forced to take half-doses of a needed medication to make your prescription last longer. These scenarios represent a reality for many individuals in York County. They make difficult choices every day about whether or not they can pay for their medication.
Established by the Healthy Community Network, a WellSpan led collaboration of community partners working to improve access to health care services for community members in need, PFF helps people get their vital medications and stay healthy.
