Frankford Hospital Changes Its Name to Aria Health
Date:5/4/2009

New organizational name and brand reflects regional vision for healthcare service delivery to greater Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County.

PHILADELPHIA and LANGHORNE, Pa., May 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Frankford Hospital announced today that it has changed its name to Aria (pronounced ARE-EE-UH) Health. The decision to transition to a new name and brand at its existing hospital and outpatient locations comes as Aria Health continues ongoing expansion of clinical programs and services throughout greater Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County.

"As Frankford Hospital, we have been a premier health care system serving the Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County community for more than a century," says Roy A. Powell, President and CEO, Aria Health. "Today, as Aria Health, we believe our new name offers us a fresh, regional brand approach to continue providing advanced medicine and personal care to a wide variety of communities well into the future. While our name has changed, our commitment to delivering excellent care for the best overall patient experience remains unchanged."

By definition, an "aria" is a piece of music written for one voice with orchestral accompaniment. "As the literal definition of aria implies, much like an orchestra Aria Health's leading physicians, nurses and support staff combine their individual expertise to achieve the highest level of positive clinical outcomes in modern, accessible and comforting facilities," says George A. Voegele, Chairman of Aria Health's Board of Directors. "Together, this top-notch team will continue our mission of providing seamless, comprehensive general and specialty medical care to all of the communities we serve now and in the future."

A 477-bed health system, Aria Health employs more than 4,000 and includes three acute care hospitals, two in Northeast Philadelphia (Frankford and Torresdale Campuses) and one in Langhorne, Bucks County, PA (Bucks County Campus), as well as two outpatient centers in Northeast Philadelphia and a network of primary and specialty care physician offices. In recent years, Aria Health has expanded invasive cardiology, oncology and surgical services. It also continues to seek approval to build an acute care hospital in Lower Makefield Township, Bucks County, PA.
