History

In 1993 Hahnemann University Hospital was bought by Allegheny General. In 1994 the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania and the Medical College of Pennsylvania merged to form the MCP Hahnemann School of Medicine, a part of the Allegheny University of the Health Sciences. In 1998 the parent company of the Allegheny University of the Health Sciences, Allegheny Health Education and Research Foundation, declared bankruptcy. Tenet Healthcare Corporation then acquired the bankrupt Allegheny University, its holdings which included Hahnemann University Hospital, and some of the other regional hospitals. Roxborough Memorial Hospital, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and Warminster Hospital were included in the additional holdings.

On August 3rd, 2000, former President Gerald Ford was admitted to the Hospital after suffering two minor strokes while attending the 2000 Republican National Convention, but made a quick recovery afterwards.

Drexel

When Tenet acquired the holdings of the Allegheny University it created MCP Hahnemann University and arranged for Drexel Universitymarker to assume its operation. In 2002 Tenet Healthcare agreed for MCP Hahnemann University to be merged into Drexel for a period of 20 years, Tenet also agreed to an affiliation between the Drexel University College of Medicine and Tenet's teaching hospitals in the Philadelphia area, with Hahnemann University Hospital being one of those.
