Our providers require this monitor in order to meet our mission of providing high-quality care to our prenatal patients. Our expectant mothers THANK YOU, Rotary Club of Lancaster & Susquehanna Bank! In addition, SouthEast Lancaster Health has received $5,000 from the William and Jemima Brossman Charitable Foundation to maintain healthier, happier patients through health related education. This will help to diminish expenses related to hospitalization and emergency department visits. We are beyond grateful for your support–THANK YOU!
