to settle for very good care if we can make it better. Many times we
can. Through the organization itself, the idea of continuous quality
improvement, of always looking for opportunities to make care more
affordable, more effective, and more accessible for the population we
serve, really is what the organization is about and, by extension, really
what the purpose of Reading HealthPlex is."

physicians in other locations the ability to see and talk to surgeons
in the operating room via cameras embedded in lights and
microphones inside the rooms during procedures. Additionally,
three da Vinci robotic surgical systems for the most intricate and

scanner for advanced imaging for traumatic illnesses, stroke and
other potentially life-threatening injuries and illnesses that come

Reading HealthPlex for Advanced Surgical & Patient Care is not

but also dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment. The
new 88,000-square-foot green roof, directly adjacent to the Reading
HealthPlex facility, is the largest green roof in the state of Pennsylvania
and the third largest green roof on a healthcare building in the U.S.
It provides patients and their families the calming benefits of nature
that can enhance patient recovery time and clinical outcomes. It
also provides a therapeutic outdoor space so patients, families and
employees can relax in nature and manage the stress that can be
associated with hospital stays or visits.
The Green Roof is planted over a waterproofing membrane and
has its own irrigation system. Eco-friendly, the Green Roof improves
air quality and acts as an insulator to moderate surface temperature

building. The Green Roof also extends the life of the city's storm
drain system, and returns cleaner water to the surrounding watershed.
Because of these benefits, Reading Hospital was named one of the 50
Greenest Hospitals in America by Becker's Hospital Review.

"I think the new facility reflects a commitment of the
organization to not be second best, to be absolutely the best the
community deserves because, in fact, the community does deserve
to have the absolute best healthcare they can and have it close
to home," says Brent Wagner, MD, Chairman, Reading Health
Board of Directors. "When we talk of moving medicine forward,
we're really speaking about the lack of complacency around our
outcomes and our processes. The new HealthPlex represents that
