As to whether Hahnemann’s closure means patients are going without care, Philadelphia Health Commissioner Thomas Farley issued this statement Thursday:
“While the Philadelphia Department of Health does not have a systematic method for monitoring the receipt of medical care by former Hahnemann patients, informal reports suggest that these patients are receiving care at other area hospitals and clinics without major disruptions in care. Many of the former Hahnemann and Drexel medical staff are now working for these other hospitals and, in some cases, seeing the same patients in the new facilities.”

For the first time, Philadelphia has actually quantified its bustling restaurant scene. According to a new report from the Health Department, the city offers just over 6,000 places to eat.
The study pulled together the count of Philly’s dine-in options via restaurant inspections and online searches, per spokesperson Jim Garrow. Anything that’s characterized as “primarily on-premise consumption” and within the city limits is included.
