The very best care is worth traveling for

Get started

Geisinger is recognized as being one of the most innovative health systems in the nation and for the high-quality care we provide our patients, both near and far. We know that it can be stressful as you think about where you should go for treatment — and how far you should travel for it. Which is why we’re here for you every step along the way.

Geisinger Centers of Excellence Program

Geisinger is recognized as a national leader for providing the highest-quality care and excellent outcomes, for our devotion to seeking and addressing the cause of a patient’s condition, and for delivering an outstanding patient experience.

Each year, hundreds of patients travel from across the U.S. to Geisinger to seek medical care in our Destination Medicine program, and organizations trust us to provide exceptional care for their employees.

This exceptional level of care is recognized, in fact, through a Centers of Excellence program for joint (hip and knee), spine, bariatric and heart surgeries. It’s a classification less than 1% of healthcare systems meet. 

We're also recognized by Covera Health as a Radiology Center of Excellence for imaging services, including CT and MRI scans. This elite designation, granted to programs that meet the highest standards in imaging, was awarded to us for our commitment to the highest quality care that includes:

  • State-of-the-art imaging facilities
  • Precise interpretation of results supplied by fellowship-trained physicians
  • Delivering the most accurate diagnoses

Our surgeons are among the most highly trained specialists in their fields, supported by leading-edge treatments, resources and technology. We take a team approach to your care, with our skilled surgeons, doctors, nurses, therapists, nutritionists and medical support staff putting you at the center.

The Centers of Excellence program may also cover additional benefits, such as your travel and lodging expenses.

“This was the most wonderful experience I have ever had at a hospital. The staff was always professional and amazing in treatment and personal care. Not one complaint from myself or my wife. Wonderful facility.”
