Pa. hospital details $80 million expansion

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania hospital is preparing to break ground on an $80 million expansion project.

Geisinger-Community Medical Center’s expansion will increase its size by a third and reshape its look inside and out.

It will include a new 14-bed operating suite, a new intensive care/critical care unit, an enhanced lobby and additional clinical and physician office space.

The project is part of a $158 million promise made by Danville-based Geisinger Health System when it became affiliated with Community Medical Center in 2011.

To date, it’s spent $20 million to upgrade the electronic health records system and began a $25 million construction project for a 46,700-square-foot medical office building at the Mount Pleasant Corporate Center in Scranton.

The remaining $14 million will be used on a yet-to-be-determined project
