Tower Names Lahmann Emergency Medicine Lead Physician

READING PA – Dr. Brian Lahmann (at top) has been appointed as physician leader for emergency medicine at Tower Health, and in an expanded role will provide “clinical oversight” for initiatives regarding emergency services throughout its system, including its hospitals in Pottstown and Phoenixville. The company made its announcement Wednesday (May 11, 2022).

Lahmann also will continue his duties as chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Tower Health’s Reading Hospital. He also serves as the associate designated institutional official for Reading Hospital’s graduate medical education activities.

The doctor joined Tower Health in 2009 as an emergency medicine physician at Reading, and later led its emergency medicine throughput initiative. In a partnership with Tower’s hospitalist services, the initiative decreased lengths of stay for admitted patients by more than 30 percent, the company said. Lahmann became vice chair of emergency medicine in 2019, and chair in February 2020.

He received his bachelor’s degree in business administration, and master’s degree in hospital and health administration from Xavier University in Cincinnati OH. He received his doctorate in medicine from Temple University School of Medicine, followed by a residency in emergency medicine at Cooper University Hospital in Camden NJ, where he served as chief resident.
