Socioeconomic Barriers Impeding Quality Health Care for Mercer Residents

GROVE CITY, Pa. – During the Mercer County Economic Summit, Dr. George Garrow, CEO of Sharon-based Primary Health Network, championed the collaboration of health care agencies during the pandemic – a collaboration that continues, he said.

He said there are significant socio-economic barriers that impede quality health care for many Mercer County residents.

“The biggest opportunity we have is to work collaboratively across all health care systems in the county,” Garrow said, and address issues such as food insecurity, housing, literacy, isolation and other social problems.
