Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

SCRANTON, Pa. – Geisinger’s investment and commitment to making health care easier in the Electric City continues with the opening of a new gastroenterology clinic and the relocation of a neuroscience clinic. These clinics are joining a number of other Geisinger clinics and health centers at 3 W. Olive St. in Scranton.

The new Geisinger Gastroenterology clinic and the new Geisinger Neuroscience clinic are now open. The clinics provide easier access for patients to get to their appointments in a larger and more comfortable outpatient setting. A renovation of nearly 17,000 square feet of space was needed to add the clinics at 3 W. Olive St. and comes as a more than $1.1 million investment between these services over the next five years. 

The gastroenterology clinic is 4,295 square feet and features 10 exam rooms. The practice includes five staff members, including two physicians and two advanced practitioners, with more physicians expected to join at a later time. The gastroenterology clinic sees patients for colonoscopy, endoscopy, heartburn, pancreatic conditions and other digestive conditions. For an appointment at this new clinic, call 1-800-275-6401.   

The neuroscience clinic is relocating to the new space from Geisinger Community Medical Center. Patients will continue to see their same providers from the hospital. The neuroscience clinic is 12,625 square feet and features 16 exam rooms, one procedure room and four rooms for specialized testing. The practice includes 13 staff members, including four providers. General neurology; neurosurgery; pediatric neurosurgery; and ear, nose and throat (ENT) care will be featured at the new location. Neuroscience providers see people with neuromuscular and movement disorders, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and memory and cognition disorders. For appointments, call 570-271-7994.

“These new specialty clinics are making health care easier for our patients,” said Ron Beer, chief administrative officer for Geisinger’s northeast region. “By investing in these services and giving them expanded space and new technology to provide patient care, it shows the dedication Geisinger has to providing top-quality health care to our neighbors in Scranton and in Lackawanna County.”

The gastroenterology and neuroscience practices join a number of specialty clinics already located at 3 W. Olive St. The location is home to Scranton’s Geisinger 65 Forward Health Center, Geisinger addiction medicine services, Geisinger Careworks walk-in clinic, Geisinger Endocrinology, Geisinger Fresh Food Farmacy, Geisinger medical labs, and Geisinger Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. Since 2012, Geisinger’s investments in the Scranton region top more than $150 million, including a recently announced orthopaedics clinic in the Mall at Steamtown.
