Aria Health is "developing a Healthy Community Coalition with many community leaders to get comprehensive input into the development of better health and healthcare in the Frankford area," hospital spokeswoman Maria Cerceo Slade said. The Philadelphia City Council is also scheduled to hold hearings in January or February to look into the hospital's ER policies.
