Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – In conjunction with the sold-out Lewistown Social – an evening of dinner, dancing and stargazing – Geisinger Health Foundation is holding an ornament sale to support the Geisinger School of Nursing.

“I had great experiences with my time at the school, including huge amounts of clinical time and hands-on experience… something that you just can't replace,” said Kade Myers, 2020 graduate and inpatient registered nurse in the Geisinger Lewistown Hospital intensive care unit. “I think this is a huge piece that contributed to who I am as a nurse today.”

The sale is open to everyone, and anyone interested in purchasing an illuminated ceramic star ornament can do so for $20 at One of three designs will be randomly chosen for each recipient. Ornaments can be picked up any day between April 24 and May 12 at:
Geisinger Lewistown Administration Building
Geisinger Health Foundation in Danville
Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center
Geisinger Community Medical Center
At the Lewistown Social for those who’ve registered to attend

Purchasers can also choose to have an ornament delivered to a deserving Geisinger nurse during National Nurses Week, May 6 through 12. Geisinger Health Foundation will follow up with those who choose this option to collect delivery information and a personal note.
