In 1963, when Samuel Riddle, a noted sportsman and Delaware County
native, left in trust the land and financial support to build a hospital
to serve his community, our mission began.
Riddle Hospital embodies Mr. Riddle’s legacy,
providing the services and health care our community needs to take
charge of their health and make the right decisions for themselves and
their families. We are here when you need us.
We are setting the bar higher. Our superior care has been recognized by
The Joint Commission for Key Quality Measures for three years in a row.
The Joint Commission has also recognized us with the Gold Seal of
Approval for hip and knee replacements, and as a Certified Stroke
Center. The Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care has certified Riddle
as a Chest Pain Center, while our Comprehensive Breast Center has been
recognized by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers.
In the Fall of 2014, we opened our new and expanded Emergency
Department (ED) to serve the needs of our community. Set in double
the space of our old ED, the new department features all private
treatment rooms and a Rapid Evaluation Unit for faster treatment of less
Riddle continues to be on the leading edge of patient care. As we have
for our entire history, Riddle Hospital aims to provide excellent cardiology,
orthopedic and oncology
services to the community. As part of the Lankenau
Heart Institute, Riddle Hospital’s heart
program provides patients a comprehensive continuum of heart care,
from routine through advanced life saving procedures. And we partner
with the area’s leading organizations to enhance our care right here in
Media. This includes services of the Rothman
Institute for Orthopaedics and oncology services through a
partnership with Jefferson University Hospital.
And, as part of Main Line Health, we can offer a wide range of care
beyond our backyard through our strong partnerships with Lankenau,
Bryn Mawr, Paoli and Bryn
Mawr Rehab hospitals, as well as Mirmont
Treatment Center. Through this collaboration, Riddle Hospital and
Main Line Health can meet the health care needs and improve the quality
of life in the communities we serve.
