Geisinger Wyoming Valley’s state-of-the art Critical Care Building is linked with northeastern and central Pennsylvania’s first and only eICU®, so that patients and their care team have the support of dedicated critical care intensivists who closely monitor critical indicators at all times to prevent serious health events. The eICU improves the care of our most critically ill patients, and the program is clinically proven to improve patient outcomes and decrease length of stay.

The 178,000 square foot Critical Care Building is also home to

  • The Emergency Services Department, open 24/7
  • 12 advanced surgical suites
  • Luzerne County’s only Level II Trauma Center
  • Critical care beds devoted exclusively to trauma patients 
  • A rooftop helipad for LifeFlight® trauma helicopters
