Extended clinic hours and resource center to address health options

SUNBURY, Pa. – To better address the health needs of the Sunbury area, Geisinger is now offering more access to clinical services and resources to navigate health options and wellness programs in the area. 

Beginning Saturday, Feb. 15, Geisinger Sunbury Clinic, 385 State St., Sunbury, will offer extended clinic hours including evening and weekend appointments. Evening hours will be available at the clinic on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. It also will have daytime hours on Saturdays and Sundays.

Geisinger also established a virtual resource center to assist community members with questions or for those looking for additional information. By calling 570-284-3655, individuals can find information on making appointments, insurance coverage, care options and career opportunities.

Information on community wellness programs in the region also is available through this resource center. These programs are free to join and help individuals reach their health goals in a group setting.

“We want to make it easier for all our communities to achieve and maintain health close to home by better connecting them with their care options,” said Tom Sokola, Geisinger’s Central Region Chief Administrative Officer. “Offering more convenient times for our neighbors to get the important preventive care services at our community clinics will help them stay healthy and reduce their need for higher level services like emergency medicine and specialty care.”

Geisinger Sunbury offers family medicine, laboratory and preventive care services. Geisinger also offers these services at Geisinger Selinsgrove, 201 Roosevelt Ave., Selinsgrove, and Geisinger Susquehanna University, 620 University Ave., Selinsgrove. Evening and weekend hours are available at Geisinger Selinsgrove.

In addition to these services, Geisinger also has two Geisinger Careworks walk-in clinics in Shamokin Dam and Danville. These locations are for illness and injury that can’t wait for a next-day appointment in a physician office but doesn’t require an emergency room visit, like cuts that require stitches, sprains, strains, skin rashes, colds, flu and fever.
