Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

President and CEO

Ms. Susan Harris McGovern

Susan Harris-McGovern, a native Chester, PA resident, is a dedicated public servant with long-standing ties to the community. Sue started her journey at ChesPenn Health Services in 1983 as an Expanded Function Dental Assistant. She then began to work her way up the organizational ladder through her tenure at ChesPenn. In 1998, Sue supervised the Center for Family Health at Eastside as their Office Manager. Then in 2009, Sue oversaw all Centers for Family Health in both Delaware and Chester Counties as their Practice Manager. She did this while earning her BA and MS degrees at Eastern University and raising three daughters. As a result of her success in managing operations over her nearly four-decade-long career, she was appointed ChesPenn’s first Chief Operating Officer in 2020. Sue’s life work at ChesPenn and her community involvement has uniquely prepared her to step into her newest role as President and CEO of ChesPenn.
