Convenient, accessible and affordable health care is vital to the Greater Susquehanna Valley. The region is furnished with a multitude of medical providers dedicated to ensuring the overall health and well-being of the Valley’s population.
Evangelical Community Hospital
Evangelical Community Hospital – a nonprofit, independent community hospital in Lewisburg – has provided convenient, accessible, and affordable health care for nearly 90 years. The hospital offers a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient series, including joint replacements through the Center for Orthopaedics, women’s care through OB/GYN of Evangelical, the Center for Breast Health, and The Family Place, interventional cardiovascular care and advanced surgical services.

Sunbury Community Hospital & Outpatient Center
Sunbury Community Hospital & Outpatient Center, another great resource in the region, is accredited by The Joint Commission and features 118 patient beds and a directory full of services and specialties. Emergency care, family medicine, physical and occupational therapy, neurological sciences, cardiac rehabilitation, a sleep lab and much more are all available on campus.
The Valley is also served by two hospitals under the direction of Susquehanna Health – Williamsport Regional Medical Center and Divine Providence Hospital – as well as an extensive group of specialty clinics and physician practices offering everything from dental and chiropractic care to primary care and more.What matters to me is that as I join the Geisinger family, we take care of every single patient as if they were my own family. So I want to deliver care that's not only the highest quality, it also has to have heaping levels of compassion.
