About the Community
Tower Health is based out of West Reading, Berks County, 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia. Reading is home to the Berks Jazz Fest, held annually for more than 25 years. At the downtown Santander Performing Arts Center, recognized as one of the top 100 concert venues in the US, you can see entertainers from Elton John to Jerry Seinfeld. The Reading Symphony Orchestra and Reading Choral Society offer more traditional performances, while every year, tens of thousands flock to Reading for World War II Weekend that features living history re-enactors, vintage WWII aircraft, and military vehicles. The Reading Public Museum, Arboretum, and Neag Planetarium, located immediately next to the hospital's campus in West Reading, offers historical and educational programs for families, adults, and children. GoggleWorks, a restored factory, is one of the largest, most comprehensive interactive community arts centers in the country. There they offer an exceptional opportunity for visitors to experience and learn about the arts in a working studio environment.
Berks County offers excellent schools, affordable homes, colleges and parks in addition to a multitude of cultural, recreational, shopping, sporting attractions and social amenities all within driving distance of shore points, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and New York City.
