Hatzel & Buehler began their relationship with Chester County Hospital in 2012, with the construction of a new 93,000 square foot patient tower. As Chester County Hospital celebrates 125 years of service, it is also embarking on its largest expansion.

For smooth transition of power Hatzel & Buehler will be adding a 500kW Flywheel UPS to the critical isolation panels in the ORs.
