ChesPenn offers behavioral health care to our current patients. Our Behavioral Health Consultants provide short term support for conditions including depression and anxiety and can help patients struggling to manage chronic disease. Patients with more severe diagnoses receive referrals to the appropriate services.
ChesPenn staff provides medical and dental health education and screenings in locations across Chester and Delaware Counties.
A patients’ health is affected by their income level, ability to maintain stable housing, food security and a host of other economic and social factors. We provide supportive services that empower residents of the communities we serve to live healthier lives.
In partnership with the Chester County Food Bank, this Coatesville initiative teaches patients how make healthy food choices and provides fresh produce accompanied by great recipes each week to help them prepare healthy meals for themselves and their families.

Many of our families can’t afford holiday gifts for their children. ChesPenn partners with Delaware Valley Children’s Charities and volunteers to collect and distribute gifts to our Chester patient families. Families are chosen through a lottery held in July.

Early language development is an important aspect of brain development. Encouraging parents to read to their children is an effective way to help children build language skills and promote more interaction between parents and small children. ChesPenn participates in the Reach Out and Read Program, which provides books to young children (6 months – 5 yrs.) during their well child visits with a pediatrician or family medicine provider.

We also host the McNeil Children’s Library in the waiting room of the Coatesville office. Every child who visits the waiting room is encouraged to take home a new or like-new book.
