Abington Memorial Hospital is an independent, 570-bed, acute care teaching hospital with a medical staff of more than 900 physicians and 5,000 employees. It provides medical care and health services to residents of Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. A regional provider, Abington Memorial Hospital has the only Level II accredited trauma center in Montgomery County, and offers highly specialized services in cardiac care, cancer care, neuroscience and orthopedics.
