Making the information we gather accessible is our prime purpose. The Lancaster Medical Heritage Museum has worked with local historians, medical professionals and students to develop a database of articles on various medical and historical areas, including the histories of medical specialties in Lancaster county and Lancaster medical institutions.
The Lancaster Medical Heritage Museum needs your support. Whether you have historical medical artifacts to donate, wish to become a member, or want to volunteer your time, we deeply appreciate your contribution.
