History

In 1993 Hahnemann University Hospital was bought by Allegheny General.[2] In 1998 the parent company, Allegheny Health Education and Research Foundation, declared bankruptcy and Tenet Healthcare Corporation acquired its holdings. These holdings included Hahnemann University Hospital and other regional hospitals such as Roxborough Memorial Hospital, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and Warminster Hospital.[1][3]

On August 3rd, 2000, former President Gerald Ford was admitted to the Hospital after suffering two minor strokes while attending the 2000 Republican National Convention, but made a quick recovery afterwards.[4]

Drexel

After Tenet Healthcare acquired the holdings of the Allegheny Health Education and Research Foundation it created the MCP Hahnemann University and arranged for Drexel University to assume its operation.[3] In 2002 Tenet Healthcare agreed to a 20 year merger between MCP Hahnemann University and Drexel University, as well as an affiliation between the Drexel University College of Medicine and Tenet's teaching hospitals in the Philadelphia area.[3]
