Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

DANVILLE, Pa. – This June, Geisinger Medical Center will begin the first phase of its road relocation project on Medical Center Drive in front of the hospital. The roadwork will happen in multiple phases and is expected to be complete in early 2025. The work is expected to start Monday, June 3, weather permitting.

The full project will remove the one-way continuous loop in front of the Danville hospital. That loop will be replaced with a two-way street featuring separate drop-off loops for patients, public transportation and valet parking. The reconfigured road will allow for a more efficient traffic pattern and is expected to reduce travel times in front of the medical center. 

The first phase of the project beginning June 3 will have minimal impacts on traffic in front of the hospital, with work limited to a valet parking area near Pleasant Street and the Pine Barn Inn parking areas. 

The Danville hospital’s public entrances, including the Abigail (main) entrance and the Foss Clinic entrance, will remain open throughout most of the project. Geisinger will communicate other updates in future phases. When possible, visitors should use alternate hospital entrances, such as the Hospital for Advanced Medicine, to alleviate traffic in the front of the hospital.

Geisinger Medical Center operations will continue as normal inside the facility. Visitors should allow for extra time when traveling to the hospital in case of construction delays. Drivers should also be alert for new traffic patterns throughout the project. Signs will direct traffic through the temporary detours.

Pine Barn Inn operations will also continue as normal throughout the roadwork project.

The road project is part of the hospital’s overall work to improve the campus for a better patient and care experience.
