Geisinger has announced a major $880m expansion plan for the Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania, US aiming to enhance healthcare services for the central Susquehanna Valley.  

The proposed project includes constructing a new 11-storey tower, located at the hospital’s front, near an expanded main entrance. 

The new tower is being designed to modernise the campus with new spaces and tools.  

It will feature a larger emergency room (ER), increasing its capacity from the existing 45 to 60 beds, and double the current space’s square footage.  

The ER will be flanked by updated intensive care units and operating suites to facilitate collaborative care for critical patients. 

In addition, the proposed plan aims to transition the hospital to a 100% private room facility, aiming to offer a more comforting environment for recovery and collaborative care planning.

The project also includes a multi-level parking garage with an enclosed sky bridge to the hospital, enhancing campus accessibility and convenience.  

This garage will connect to the Pine Barn Inn, which will continue to operate next to the hospital. 

Geisinger said that the latest expansion comes as healthcare access demand grows in Pennsylvania and nationwide.  

It follows the recent start of construction on Geisinger Behavioral Health Center Danville, a 96-bed inpatient facility set to open in 2025.  

Geisinger Medical Center is known for specialised treatments, including transplant surgery, Level I trauma care and advanced cancer care. 

Roadway development work has begun to improve traffic flow, with the Danville project’s demolition phase starting in 2025 and the new tower expected to open in 2028.  

Geisinger central region chief administrative officer Megan Brosious said: “This project will completely reimagine the Geisinger Medical Center campus to strengthen collaboration among our staff and units for better patient care. 

“Our patients will have a modern care environment where they can continue receiving expert care right here in Danville, as they’ve come to expect from us over the past century. And our teams will have the space they need to provide that care.”
