Construction work commences of medical office building in Pennsylvania

WCN Editorial Team 18 Nov 2021 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Construction has commenced of a new medical office building at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, US.

This building will make healthcare more accessible for patients in the county with more availability of specialty services on the hospital campus.  

The 160,000ft2 clinic space will feature four floors besides a lower level.

This building will feature general surgery, vascular surgery, pulmonology, infectious diseases, neurology, paediatric neurology, neurosurgery, neurophysiology, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat)/audiology, general internal medicine, nephrology and transplant outreach practices as well as laboratory and radiology services and a retail pharmacy.

The Medical Office Building is expected to cut down wait times for patients by enabling programme expansion, hiring of 20 new providers, and more appointments in these disciplines.

As the programmes mature, it is expected that the building will create around 70 jobs and cater to around 70,000 new patient visits each year. 

Geisinger’s northeast region associate vice president of operations Dan Landesberg said: “We are grateful that more and more of our friends and neighbors are trusting Geisinger with their care, and we know we have to continue to grow to make our services easier to use for patients in Luzerne County.

“This is another step forward in bringing better health to our region by providing a more comprehensive spectrum of services on our hospital campus and allowing for in-demand services to grow with our community need.”

Set up over 100 years ago by Abigail Geisinger, the Geisinger Health system now features nine hospital campuses, two research centers and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.

Geisinger Health has almost 24,000 employees and over 1,600 physicians.
