The ACGME has been notified that the hospital will file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on or about June 28, 2019 with the intention to wind down hospital operations and subsequently close Hahnemann. Hahnemann is anticipated to discontinue hospital operations in coordination with the Pennsylvania Department of Health on or about September 6, 2019 and will shut its doors at a later date to be determined.
The ACGME has invoked its Extraordinary Circumstances Policy, as of June 26, 2019 (ACGME Policies and Procedures, Section 21.00). The ACGME facilitates accreditation considerations that make it possible for residents to transfer to other programs. The ACGME is not directly involved in resident placement or decisions related to funding. Residents and fellows should speak to their Program Director or Designated Institutional Official.
In order for programs to offer positions to residents and fellows displaced in this circumstance, they must first update the 2019-2020 roster in the Accreditation Data System (ADS) including any new residents and fellows.
For programs to offer approved but unfilled resident and fellow positions, under the Overview tab, indicate the number of available positions and their type (permanent or temporary), year in program, and include any comments for each position.
Programs at full complement may also request temporary or permanent complement increases by following the normal procedures in ADS. Review Committees will process requests in an expedited manner. Increases will be approved as warranted for programs in good standing with available resources. Programs should include, in the complement request rationale, a specific reference to “Hahnemann University Hospital Closure.”
All available positions will be compiled and periodically disseminated to the Hahnemann Graduate Medical Education office.

If you are currently experiencing an incomplete User Interface (UI), please add "acgme.org" domain to your ad blocking plugin/extension whitelist. The reason for the page displaying without styles resides in the domain name having "ads" ex: apps.acgme.org/ads in which the plugin/extension reacts to "Ads".
