DANVILLE, Pa. – Sometimes you don’t need to look too far to find a great story. At Geisinger, some of the best stories come from the patients, members, employees and students who receive care and work across the system every day.

As Geisinger heads into a new year of caring, a big thank you needs to be given to everyone who allowed Geisinger to be a part of their 2017 journey. In many cases, that included sharing personal and touching stories with Geisinger’s tens of thousands of social media fans.

It was all of the likes, shares, views and comments on those stories that showed which ones truly resonated with Geisinger’s loyal social media followers and shaped Geisinger’s Top 10 social media list of 2017. 

Kitties in an emergency room, a blizzard baby and the world’s greatest medical students all made the top 10, as did genetics, the Fresh Food Farmacy and so much more.

The top 10 list is below and can also be found on Geisinger’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages by searching #GeisingerTop10.

Patients and employees can share their own story with Geisinger as the journey into 2018 begins. Submit stories by emailing
