    Lancaster to Philly minimum of 1 1/2 one way, possibly 2hrs....Reading is closer ~45 min.

    Brandywine Hospital in Coatesville, approx. 40 minutes from Lancaster, is not a teaching facility, but is a Trauma Center.

    I assume you already looked into York Hospital? Another Philly suburb teaching facility is Abington Memorial Hospital.

    Actually, I just checked their website, and it no longer mentions Trauma Center status. Perhaps that has changed. What about Harrisburg area hospitals?

    Harrisburg is a bit of a haul from Lancaster....Lancaster is closer to Reading Hospital ....Here's a link to help you-
