West Reading, Pa.-based Tower Health reduced charges by an average of 30 percent at nearly all of its hospitals after reviewing a third-party report on costs at other regional hospitals, according to WFMZ.

The cost reductions affect a wide array of services, procedures, tests and medications at Tower’s hospitals in Brandywine, Chestunt Chestnut Hill, Jennersville, Phoenixville and Pottstown, all in Pennsylvania. They went into effect Dec. 1.

The prices at Reading (Pa.) Hospital will not change, as the independent report found that its charges were already in line with local competitors.
