Security Escort Service at Pennsylvania Hospital

Security personnel create a safe environment for patients, visitors and employees. You will see security personnel in uniform throughout the hospital. If you need security assistance, contact your head nurse.

Identification Badge Policy

All members of the hospital staff and volunteers are required to wear an identification badge with his or her photograph, name and department clearly printed on it. Please do not hesitate to ask to see it if you do not see a badge on someone involved with your care.

Upon request, security officers will escort visitors within a two-block radius of the hospital, including all hospital parking lots. Beyond the two-block area, a "Walk 'N Watch" service is provided: an officer will walk visitors to the boundary and observe as they continue to their destination.

To request an escort, call 215-829-8090. Please allow five to ten minutes for an officer to arrive.
