Crozer-Keystone Health System on Saturday celebrated the opening of a new outpatient center in Broomall, expanding the Delaware County system's reach into territory wealthy competitors have long mined for patients. But Crozer's chief operating officer, Patrick Gavin, rejected the notion that Crozer was edging toward the Main Line with the $16.5 million facility in a former Pathmark, on Lawrence Road near Route 3, that was gutted and totally rebuilt. "This is traditional Delaware County," Gavin said after the ribbon-cutting, as guests wandered through the 50,000-square-foot center, which offers one-stop shopping for primary care, X-rays, cancer care, and other health services.

Pat Monahan didn't know much about Levittown Western before the American Legion Region 3 Tournament opened. But the Broomall third baseman had a feeling Western was the club to beat in the eight-team, double-elimination tourney. "There was just something about that team," Monahan said. "I figured if we could have beat them, it would have been all downhill from there. " But Broomall ended with an uphill climb when Western scored seven times in the second inning. Broomall never got it going offensively and eventually fell to Western, 8-1, last week at Philadelphia Textile.

WSFS Financial Corp. , one of the biggest banks still based in the Philadelphia area, on Tuesday agreed to pay $92 million for Broomall-based Alliance Bancorp Inc. , which operates eight branches in Delaware and Chester Counties. The price works out to $22 a share, a 10-year high for Alliance, which has lately traded around $17, but less than the nearly $24 that Alliance was worth at its 2004 peak. With low interest rates squeezing small lenders, Alliance has been under pressure to find a buyer since 2013, when Illinois-based PL Capital Advisors bought 9 percent of the shares and threatened to run its own candidate against one of Alliance's incumbent directors.

A Broomall investment start-up has launched two new exchange-traded funds. Underpinning the investment philosophy: tax efficiency. Tax-aware investing makes a lot of sense now that capital gains taxes are so high - nearly 45 percent on short-term capital gains, when including the new Obamacare tax - and some financial planners consider them more important than estate taxes. Alpha Architect was founded by Wes Gray and Carl Kanner in 2010. As a start-up, they initially ran money privately for a billion-dollar family in 2011.
