We remind people to always be careful when asked to provide personal, medical or financial information over the phone. Community members have reported calls claiming to represent Brandywine Hospital then asking for a credit card number to clear medical bills. While the caller ID may look like it is from Brandywine Hospital, the hospital is not making these calls.
Be skeptical of unsolicited calls to avoid falling victim to a scammer. Numbers on caller ID can be faked. If a caller says they represent Brandywine Hospital and you are not confident this is true, hang up. Then call the hospital at (610) 383-8000 or another phone number you know is valid from an appointment confirmation, the phone book or the hospital website.
