Community Health Needs Assessment
For nearly a century Geisinger has provided superior health care services to the communities we serve in northeast and central Pennsylvania. We are proud of our non-profit mission and work every day to ensure we meet the health care needs of the region for years to come. Our organization has taken major steps recently in achieving that goal.
- The medical services we provide are the most advanced in the region - serving more than 2.6 million people in 44 counties.
- Last year, we contributed $414.1 million in community benefit and more than $2 billion over the past 10 years.
- We partner with area hospitals and providers to strengthen health care delivery across the state.
- We've added 10,000 new jobs throughout Pennsylvania over the last decade.
- Recognizing that our employees drive everything we do, we invest in their salaries, benefits, training and education to the tune of nearly $1.9 billion a year. It's one reason why we were named
- to the Becker's Hospital Review "100 Best Places to Work in Health Care" list.
- We're growing the local economy, employing more than 23,500 residents and increasing our state-wide $8.9 billion economic impact.
As a successful not-for-profit health organization, our financial strength allows us to reinvest in our people, programs, services, facilities and technology. In addition to our approximate $1.9 billion in annual salaries/benefits, etc., we have also invested more than $1 billion in capital expenditures over the past decade.
Geisinger's integrated health care system has become a nationally-recognized model of care delivery. Looking forward, Geisinger is firmly committed to staying on the forefront of innovation and quality, providing value to our patients and members, finding the most efficient and effective ways to deliver care and collaborating with organizations in the communities we serve. We hope you find this website useful as we continue to grow.
CHNA survey underway
Geisinger and its partners, Allied Services and Evangelical Community Hospital, are undertaking a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to gain a better understanding of health needs across the communities we serve and encourage collaboration to address those needs. We’ve enlisted Baker Tilly as our research partner to assist with data collection, facilitation, reporting and planning.
We believe that an integral part of the CHNA is community engagement. As we begin the project, we invite our community partners to lend their expertise to the CHNA. We hope to gather your insight in identifying the issues that most impact our communities’ health and encourage a collaborative approach for ongoing community health improvement.

You are invited to provide your individual insights through an online Key Informant Survey. The survey will collect your thoughts on a wide variety of community health issues. Results from the survey and other research findings will be shared with you for further discussion during partner forums to be conducted in January. The survey will close Nov. 30, 2018.
