Established in 1828, the Chester County
Medical Society, founded by Dr. William
Darlington, M.D., is thought to be the oldest
county medical society in the State. The
Medical Society is involved in all aspects of
healthcare policy, practice, and education and
serves to advance the health of the community
and to protect and expand the healthcare
resources available to its citizens.

collaboratively with the Pennsylvania
Medical Society, but our focus is on our local
community. The Society's role in Chester
County is to support, protect, and advocate
for our physicians and our patients. We look
forward to growing an important healthcare
service for our community that will benefit us
all, and we look forward to hearing from you.
