Why work at Main Line Health?
Beauty of the 'burbs, proximity to the city—for starters
Main Line Health serves the Philadelphia Tri-State area, which includes the Main Line, a collection of some of the most beautiful suburbs in the country, with tree-lined streets, stone colonial homes, parks, affordable housing, the best school systems in the state, convenient shopping, a variety of restaurants, and an outstanding quality of life in a top-tier community. Malvern, Paoli, Exton, Media and Collegeville are just a few of the other outstanding communities that are great places to live within an easy commute to our hospitals.
To work at Main Line Health also means our hospital campuses are just minutes from the city of Philadelphia, with its vibrant, urban offerings, from chic restaurants to shopping and shows, set amidst historic architecture and the nation's first capitol, rich with American history and culture.
