The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Einstein Healthcare Network said Tuesday that they will jointly provide neonatal, newborn, maternal care, and pediatric emergency services at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, in East Norriton.

CHOP, which already has relationships with at least a dozen community hospitals in the region, is expected to start providing neonatal care by the end this year, with expansion expected thereafter.

The joint programs will be housed in Einstein's existing Montgomery County facility, but it is not yet clear how much space they will occupy.
