Revised plans by Fresenius Medical Care to convert a building at 10 E. Moreland Ave for use as an outpatient dialysis center and medical office suite were unanimously approved May 18 by the Chestnut Hill Community Association’s Development Review Committee after a lengthy discussion and hearing of public comments.

In its second appearance before the DRC, Fresenius presented changes to its original proposal based on input received from other CHCA committees.

DRC support, however, is contingent upon Fresenius agreeing to a list of conditions that would govern the facility’s hours of operation, the location of ambulance parking and multiple architectural details relating to the look of the building’s restored windows, treatments to the façade, and screening of air conditioning units on the rooftop.

Hospital lends a big hand to relay race for cancer funds

One weekend every year, Wissahickon High School is transformed into more than just a school. It becomes the center for the Wissahickon Valley Relay for Life, an event to raise money to find the cure for cancer. The last relay took place on May 15 and 16,  and again Chestnut Hill Hospital’s team was at the forefront.

Apartment residents file class action suit

Almost one year ago, a Roxborough apartment building was set ablaze by a resident member of Project Transition – a for-profit program that places adults with psychiatric problems in apartments, allowing them to live independently while receiving treatment. Last week, residents of Henry on the Park apartments filed a class-action lawsuit against their landlord and Project Transition.
