Geisinger to invest $900M in Pennsylvania hospital expansion

Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger announced $900 million in capital commitments to nearly double the size of its Wilkes Barre, Pa.-based Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.

Included in the plan is the construction of an 11-story tower that will make the hospital an all-private room facility. The tower is expected to open in 2028, and additional renovations will continue through 2030, according to a July 12 Geisinger news release.

With this latest project, Geisinger has invested $1.4 billion into Luzerne County since 2008.

"Through this expansion, we are not only creating a larger physical footprint but also fostering an environment of innovation, collaboration and compassion," Ron Beer, chief administrative officer of Geisinger's northeast region, said in the release. "Creating a fully private room facility, which has tangible quality and patient satisfaction benefits, embodies our goal to foster a welcoming and healing environment. This approach, in tandem with equipping our hospitals with the latest advancements, allows us to maintain a patient-centered model that prioritizes the individual needs of every patient who comes through our doors."
