Facility expansion allows more specialty services and appointment availability
Port Matilda, Pa. – A facility expansion is underway at Geisinger Healthplex State College (formerly Gray’s Woods). This development will make better health easier for patients in Centre County and beyond by allowing for growth of specialty services and increased appointment availability.
The expanding clinic, at 132 Abigail Lane in Port Matilda, will be two floors and will include existing specialties and services such as:
• Family practice/community medicine
• Imaging services
Other services at the healthplex include:
• GI/GI nutrition
Demand for these services is growing in Centre County, and the growing healthplex will reduce patients’ wait times through expanding programs, hiring more providers and offering more appointments. As programs mature, the development will improve access for our patients making better health easier for our communities.
“The expansion of Geisinger Healthplex State College will address the growing need for care in Centre County,” said Tammy Anderer, chief administrative officer of Geisinger’s western region. “This is another step toward making better health easier by bringing a comprehensive spectrum of services to our patients and community.”
Services will be grouped in the facility for convenience, such as placing pediatrics next to women’s health, and orthopaedics near imaging services. The main entrance will also be redesigned in the back of the building.
“The expansion project exemplifies the commitment of Geisinger to best support our team in the pursuit of continued access to efficient, convenient and top-quality care for our patients,” said Michael Sobolewski, D.O., division chief of musculoskeletal in Geisinger’s western region. “It will also provide growth and diversity of subspecialty providers and the treatment options our team is able to provide right here in our community.”
“Our pediatrics patients will enjoy a larger clinic, allowing for more exam rooms and a dedicated space for pediatric subspecialists as well as our child psychology and psychiatry partners,” said Joy Drass, M.D., medical director for pediatrics in Geisinger’s western and north-central regions. “We’ll have a separate clinic flow for sick and well patients and will have rooms outfitted to be more comfortable for our breastfeeding moms and lactation appointments.”
Facility expansion is set to be complete at the end of 2024.
