Specialty services provide care closer to home
The medical office building officially opened its doors Monday morning. Located at 1165 Centre Turnpike, Orwigsburg, the 37,216 square foot, 3-story building is the latest investment in patient care for the area.
The specialty services in the building complement those at Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital. The building’s first level includes imaging and walk-in X-ray services; spine and pain care; sports medicine; and orthopedics services. The second level includes cardiology, gynecology, and pulmonary and critical care services. The doctors and advanced practitioners offering these services are employees of the Geisinger St. Luke’s joint venture.
“As more of our neighbors choose Geisinger St. Luke’s for their care, we’re continuing to invest in technology and services to advance care and better our community’s health,” said Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital President Gabe Kamarousky. “The specialty services inside the medical office building are going to make it easier for our patients to manage health care closer to home.”
A state-of-the-art 3-D breast imaging system from GE Healthcare is among the technology available in the medical office building. Housed inside a SensorySuite to ease anxiety, the mammography system allows women to adjust compression during their mammogram, providing more control and offering a more comfortable experience. Walk-in X-ray services are available now, with the additional imaging services beginning in early July.
Appointments are now available for all services in the medical office building. Call 272-639-5130 or visit geisingerstlukes.org for more information.
