UPMC hospital closes ER, ends inpatient services

UPMC Susquehanna Sunbury (Pa.) closed its emergency room on Jan. 31, according to The Daily Item.

Pittsburgh-based UPMC announced plans in December to close UPMC Susquehanna Sunbury, citing dwindling patient volumes. Though the hospital will officially close its doors March 31, UPMC Susquehanna Sunbury stopped accepting ambulance transports Jan. 28 and closed its ER and ceased inpatient services Jan. 31, according to The Daily Item.

"Officials have worked collaboratively with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, EMS agencies, referring providers, media, government officials and community agencies to inform the public of the closure," a UPMC spokesperson told The Daily Item on Jan. 30.

The Sunbury hospital will continue to offer outpatients services until March 31.
