The health care Lancaster County deserves, closer to home.
Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center will bring residents of Lancaster and York counties enhanced access to Penn State Health’s expertise and specialty services without having to make the drive to Hershey.
Location: 2160 State Road, Lancaster, Pa, 17601
Near the intersection of State Road and Harrisburg Pike, East Hempfield Township
About the Facility:
Lancaster Medical Center will enhance an already vibrant network of primary and specialty care providers across Lancaster County, including practice sites of the former Physicians’ Alliance LTD that joined Penn State Health in 2017 and the Lime Spring Outpatient Center that opened in East Hempfield Township in January 2019. Expanding this footprint will help ensure residents of these communities have access, quality and choice of care as close to home as possible.
The Lancaster Medical Center hospital also will create new clinical and research opportunities for learners and investigators at Penn State College of Medicine, as well as hundreds of well-paying jobs, both during construction and after the hospital opens.
The new hospital will feature all private inpatient beds, an emergency department, physician offices, various specialty inpatient services, an imaging lab and complete medical and surgical capabilities.
Construction of the building is anticipated to begin in 2020, pending completion of all necessary approvals and continuing dialogue with community and township leaders.
The new facility will create hundreds of well-paying jobs, both during construction and for hospital operations.
