Wilkes-Barre General Hospital in Pennsylvania Opens Heart and Vascular Facility

Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) General Hospital, an affiliate of Commonwealth Health in Northeastern Pennsylvania, has completed its new $53 million heart and vascular institute tower and emergency department, according to a Citizens' Voice report.

The 90,000-square-foot expansion includes an ED nearly twice the size of the current department and a heart and vascular institute tower above the ED. The heart and vascular institute tower features three cardiac catheterization labs.

The ED includes a "fast track" area with 10 treatment rooms, a three-bay ambulance entrance and medication rooms. The facility also offers radiology services.
