When Geisinger began its mission to bring quality health care to rural communities, Philipsburg was its first choice. Geisinger invests in making health care more accessible to the community in Moshannon Valley through its various programs and initiatives.
"The community in the Moshannon Valley has always been very supportive and they take pride in working together with us to provide excellent health care to everyone. We are honored to receive this appreciation and are committed to care for this wonderful community", said Dr. Philip Pilgram, Geisinger physician who has been serving the community for 33 years.
