Tower Health has lost a lawsuit it filed against Community Health Systems in 2019, alleging a breach of agreement in its 2017 purchase of Pottstown Hospital. A federal court ruling, released Tuesday, said no violation occurred.
Thirty Pottstown Memorial Medical Center employees are affected by the business office relocation and consolidation, its spokeswoman said.
The newly acquired facilities are in Scranton and Peckville PA.
PMMC made a 2010 fiscal year profit of $34 million, and at 18.08 percent had the highest operating margin among 23 hospitals in Montgomery, Chester, Bucks and Delaware counties, according to a state report.
