Lock Haven Hospital now part of UPMC
LOCK HAVEN – UPMC Susquehanna announced today, Oct. 2, that Lock Haven Hospital and Sunbury Community Hospital have officially joined the UPMC Susquehanna family.
“Bringing these hospitals into our family allows us to reinvest in both facilities to improve access, enhance care, and grow existing services,” says Steven P. Johnson, president of UPMC Susquehanna. “This move benefits the operations, expansion and financial stability of both facilities. We are excited to extend our tradition of high-quality, compassionate care to the Lock Haven and Sunbury communities.”
Serving Central Pennsylvania, Lock Haven Hospital, now UPMC Susquehanna Lock Haven, is a 47-bed hospital providing inpatient and outpatient care. Services include emergency, medical and surgical care, robust senior programs, pain management, rehabilitation, cardiopulmonary, orthopedics, family medicine and women’s health services. It is a Joint Commission-accredited facility with over 40 employed physicians, gold seal-accredited mammography, and an adjacent 90-bed long-term rehabilitation center.
“Lock Haven works hard every day to be a place of healing, caring and connection for patients and families in the community,” notes Ron Reynolds, Vice President of Clinton County Operations for UPMC Susquehanna. “We are pleased to welcome them into the UPMC Susquehanna family and continue to build on our reputation of providing patients with high-quality doctors, nurses and medical staff close to home. Bringing a new level of innovation, collaboration and access is a great win for the Lock Haven community.”
As part of its mission to expand quality services and health care access throughout the northcentral Pennsylvania region, UPMC Susquehanna acquired both hospitals from affiliates of Quorum Health following an asset purchase agreement in June. Over the past few months, transition teams have begun working closely together to align operational systems.
To commemorate the official announcement, campuses throughout UPMC Susquehanna welcomed the new additions with celebrations, meet-and-greets, and refreshments.
