A Legacy of Compassionate Community Care
In 1910, Dr. Horace Furness Taylor and his wife Katherine, a nurse, converted their home in Ridley Park into a hospital to serve the local community. With fewer than a dozen patient rooms, the house was also home to a nurses training school. Today, more than 110 years later, Dr. and Mrs. Taylor’s dream lives on at Taylor Hospital, not far from the site of their original home.
The 107-bed acute care hospital named for its founder remains a vital part of the community, providing high-quality, compassionate care for patients in Ridley Park and southeastern Delaware County at every stage of life.
From primary care and emergency medicine to general and specialty surgeries, Taylor is a full-service community hospital. Each year, Taylor admits more than 7,000 patients and receives more than 28,000 Emergency Department (ED) visits. It also partners with local employers – large and small – to help keep their employees healthy at work and at home.
In addition to a busy ED, Taylor Hospital offers a variety of diagnostic imaging services and surgical services, as well as cardiology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, and primary care services. The hospital is designated as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission in collaboration with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, meaning the quality of care it provides meets the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients. Taylor also is home to an acclaimed inpatient rehabilitation center
